"I teach from my passion and one of my greatest passions is history! I love to connect the dots for kids so the story of history becomes their own story. Learning about the history of our world is imperative to a well-balanced education. 


In addition to Modern World History and Geography, I teach Humanities,  English 9/10, and Foundations at Community. I have 3 homeschool graduated sons, a soon-to-be high school daughter and I am one of the founding directors of Community."
