Welcome to my website! As someone with an 11 year background in the technology industry prior to beginning my newer career as a high school Social Studies teacher, I know the importance of using technology tools to communicate with students and parents. To help your student outside the classroom, this website also has a daily calendar of all work in downloadable format, test reviews, full class notes, and tutoring tools. For more detail on my teaching methods and information for parents, please visit here.
I have a Sociology degree from the University of Texas at Austin and hold a Social Studies teaching certification from the University of Texas at Dallas. Before moving to North Carolina in 2009, I was a Microsoft Windows System Administrator in the banking industry. Basically, I was a "techie" who maintained, monitored and supported all aspect of Windows desktop and server environments.
While I enjoyed my challenging career in the technology industry, my long term goal was always to teach at the high school level. History and traveling are two of my greatest passions, so teaching Social Studies was an easy decision for me. After more than a decade in the computer industry, I opted to leave my career at the bank, "move forward" and start new opportunities in public education. I have taught Psychology/Sociology, Civics and Economics, American History, Law and Justice and AP US History and AP Government and Politics.
