Check out my Resume Here

I am a high energy teacher (watch my videos) that stimulates and engages students by presenting information in an easily consumable format. My lessons are visual, verbal and built for short attention spans. My activities are inclusive and are designed to reach struggling students while also allowing for high-level students to engage topics from Bloom's higher order of thinking (Evaluation and Creation). Check out the courses that I have designed over my decade of teaching:

American History Curriculum

  • Based on AP Standards
  • Technologically Driven
  • Student Centered
  • Balanced Curriculum that Respects all Beliefs

Civics and Economics Curriculum

  • Based on Virginia, NC and Ohio American Government, Civics, and Financial Literacy Standards
  • Technologically Driven
  • Student Centered
  • Balanced Curriculum that Respects all Beliefs

World History Curriculum

  • Broad and Simple Intro to World History
  • Beta Version


  • Curation of the Best Science Videos that Align with Standardized Tests
  • Each video is supported by an assessment and games

My educational philosophy is based on the research of educational leaders and my own data-driven findings.
The first step of the approach is the mastery of the basics. Students will develop a foundational knowledge of the content through traditional strategies aided by technology.

With a common vocabulary and base knowledge, student background experience will be utilized to create scaffolding. This foundational knowledge will be further developed through application activities.

The final step of the learning process is to extend the developed knowledge through analysis and evaluation via fair, honest, and respectful debate.

During this process, high-level students will be given creative outlets during the application activities. The struggling students will receive one-on-one support during the application activity — matching boards, or a quick review of facts and definitions (this intervention will be tracked and the data will be utilized for evaluation and improvement).
