Education is very important and has given me opportunities I never would have otherwise. I love to read, discuss, and learn; I never get tired of getting ready to go to school. Additionally, I have been married for 37+years and have three beautiful daughters: Elise is a Marine stationed in Quantico, Virginia, Marcie graduated from SPU and is a real estate agent in Seattle, and Kris is also making her own way in the Pacific Northwest.
My Education and Professional Background
I am a proud graduate of the University of Arizona as I received both my undergraduate and graduate degrees from there. My Master's degree is in Special Education for Gifted, and I am highly qualified to teach K-8 all subjects as well as social studies and history for grades 7-12. I have taught AP/Honors World History, AP Human Geography, AP US History and AVID. I also sponsor Fellowship of Christian HUSKIES and Model UN.
My Educational Philosophy
Taking an AP class is a great way to challenge yourself academically and show colleges that you're serious about your education. An AP class on your transcript signals stronger academic training, especially with high passing scores of 4 and 5 on the test. This class is full of SIMULATIONS and practical/PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING so that you "BECOME" part of the history we will study. It is my goal to be the best World History teacher I can be. I expect it to be your goal to be the best student you can be. I will give you every opportunity to succeed. Let me know how we can best achieve our goals. I am looking forward to a challenging yet fun school year!
