I received my undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in Family History and Genealogy. What that means is that I was trained to do primary research, or research in original records. I received my graduate degree from the University of Massachusetts Boston in History Teaching. I took entire classes on President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the history of New York City, and the Atomic Bomb, and wrote curriculum for other classes.
As a published author of a 290-page sports biography, I also have extensive experience in writing, editing, and proofreading. I spend most of my spare time continuing my education in history in order to improve my abilities and effectiveness as an educator. I taught in Arizona and am now a licensed and practicing educator in Boston Public Schools.
As one who struggled to do well in school, I understand the difficulties students often face in grasping various concepts, whether it is the difference between the Senate and the House of Representatives or defining commonly used words like "culture" or "civilization."
Although I am not new to education, I am new to WyzAnt and look forward to serving you!
