"One reason I love to teach is due the misconceptions in historical events. Every side has two stories, and one of the jobs I feel I have as a history teacher is showing these sides. Sometimes events in history or messy, but it is only through comprehension can we hope to prevent these events from unfolding in the future.
Every year I teach I come in with a common goal. That goal is to improve the historical analytical skills of the students. Throughout the year I try to make students become detectives to better understand the events. There is a cause and effect in events that unfold, and it is our job to seek to understand the causes to the best of our ability.
The reason I chose William & Reed is due to the growth not only in myself as a teacher but the students. During my visit, I could see the students engaged, and upon further discussions with teachers here you can see the environment is different than most schools.
As for me personally, I have two puppers & the most important person in my life my wife Heather. We enjoy taking our dogs on walks, and we recently have gotten into the escape room buzz. The one hitch in our relationship is I am a die hard Eagles fan (Super Bowl Champs!) and she is a Saints fan."
