About Behar

I am a NYS certified Social Studies teacher with a long experience in teaching in public school. I have a Bachelor's in History, a Master's in History , and an advanced degree in education. I am a citizen of this country and have a long experience in traveling around the world and knowing history not only through reading books but touching historical sites, objects, meeting with people in different countries. I have worked with students of high schools level most of the time and with middle schools age students for some years.

My teaching philosophy is learning through doing, using primary sources to understand history, writing journal, short responses and essays. On the other hand, visuals, like photos, cartoons, short or long films ( documentary or artistic) are other my favorite tools in teaching history.

I like very much involving students in discussions. Socratic method of discussing topics of different kinds is among my best and most effective method in dealing with students who like or struggle learning history.
