ExperienceI believe that all students have the ability to succeed and the students in my courses know that is the expectation. My goal for students that I engage with is to teach them that learning is a lifelong experience that can have positive, long term affects. I have taught social studies in the Virginia Beach Public School system at the middle school level over the last 4 years. I have taught three different levels of social studies, over my 8 year career; civics and economics, and U.S. history both I and II. My license includes the ability to teach language arts or English (course names may change slightly in different geographic regions.) In addition, I coach the football and wrestling teams at the same school where I teach. I feel it is my goal to create a safe and welcoming environment whether it is in the classroom or the gym. My career choice has allowed me the opportunity to work with a variety of children from multiple age groups ranging from kindergarten through high school. I encourage students to use the materials they learn in class and incorporate them into their own experiences.
HobbiesSports (Basketball, Football, Wrestling), music, playing guitar, the beach, exercising, and my puppy Caesar!
