Hello! I am very excited to begin my 23rd year in education. I spent my first year working with Special School District as a paraprofessional assigned to Ladue Horton Watkins High School and Conway Elementary and taught a summer school section of US History prior to coming to Webster Groves High School. For the last 22 years I have primarily taught World Civilizations. I have a tremendous passion for studying history and teaching students how to develop the necessary skills to analyze historical content and apply it to today. In addition to teaching history I have spent a great deal of time over the past several years researching dyslexia and applying the things I have learned to my teaching practices.
