I taught US History at both the high school and middle school level in public schools and have a bachelor's degree in history and a masters in education from Stanford with a social studies emphasis. In addition, I'm an attorney and have a strong background in constitutional history. I use a variety of resources, visual, musical, and personal to help students understand American history as something that impacts their lives on a daily basis. I also use primary sources from ordinary people like letters, journals, and account books to help convey the impact of events on ordinary people. [more]
