Thoughts on teaching, learning, technology, and leadership from the field

Curriculum Design and Revision, Instructional Strategies, and More

It’s hard to find curriculum experts who understand the unique challenges and opportunities facing Social Studies teachers. Need help with your scope and sequence? Units need revising? Want to know more about best instructional practices in Social Studies? Curious about implementing technology? Let’s talk about how I can help. I bring more than 10 years experience in Social Studies education, curriculum design principles using UbD, and a passion for making sure that every teacher and every student is prepared to succeed!
