new! I've published a book!
Published by Rowman & Littlefield
Those facts. Those dates. Those four walls. Those still and petrified fossils of traditional history courses. Sure, it's history, but do we have to turn to tradition for guidance? Let's make it worth the students' time. Let's give them something to take beyond their high school experience. Let's reboot history.
The goal of the social studies is to provide students with the tools necessary to be active and productive citizens. We're here to assist students in developing problem-solving skills that are relevant to their future, and this can be done whether we teach about Ancient Athens or modern Akron, Ohio.
So, take a moment, take a torch to the bland, and create something energizing and refreshing.
Get it on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble! Check out the book trailer.
I'm good at designing and organizing meaningful experiences that help enhance a sense and understanding of community. Whether for high school students or professionals, I enjoy creating atmospheres for deep conversation and learning. To that end, I collaborate with others and brainstorm innovative ideas to ensure valuable experiences for all involved, and I've also got skills in:
1. Leadership. Guide education into the next century by providing students and professionals with real-world and leadership experiences in their community.
2. Storytelling. Facilitate a safe environment that encourages conversation, while creating an interactive and curious atmosphere that energizes excitement.
3. Networking. Connect students and local experts with the goal of reforming and exciting the educational world.
