I lead courses and workshops that blend hands-on activities with dynamic group discussion and thoughtful analysis of primary and secondary sources. I bring extensive historical knowledge to the classroom along with an earnest enthusiasm for facilitating meaningful education for students, teachers, and adult learners.
