As a teacher, it is always my priority to make my classroom an equitable, accessible, and enjoyable space. I favor low-pressure, discussion-based environments in which students know that answers can be "messy" and that they are in a safe space to get things wrong. I have found that this ensures more students have their "lightbulb moments," because they feel comfortable asking questions. Every classroom is different, and every student has their individual needs; it is my job as a teacher to facilitate learning while supporting these needs. In my teaching, I believe in student investment, clear communication, accessible resources, and teaching skills that go beyond my classroom. I also believe in connecting our primary sources to the bigger picture and emphasize critical historical thinking.
Here are some of the resources I have compiled or made for students, as well as sample assignments.
