My name is Mike, and I have been a certified teacher of grade 7-12 social studies in New Jersey and Pennsylvania since May 2010. I have five years' experience in a private school teaching World and American History and I also have experience teaching American government and ESL as well. I am also in the process of pursuing my Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.
