About Me: This is my eighth year teaching, and I currently teach in the OPEN program here at South. I've always been passionate about history and I love getting to share that with my students. My favorite areas of history are the history of Ireland, WWII history, and women's studies. Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my friends, being outside, traveling, and reading.

About My Teaching: I think education is one of the most important things in creating change in the world. As part of the OPEN program, I don't use points in my classroom. Students are evaluated on the quality of their work, their engagement in class, and their level of comprehension of the concepts we cover. The goal of this approach is to help students make a more meaningful connection to what they are learning rather than simply "getting a grade."

Google Classroom: Specific details for all of my classes are posted on Google Classroom.
