Since September 2001 I have been a member of the Social Studies Department at Hunterdon Central Regional High School in Flemington, NJ. I graduated from Rutgers College in May of 2000 with a Bachelor's degree in History with a minor in Sociology. I continued on to the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education to earn my teaching certification and Master's degree in May of 2001.
My courses for the 2010-2011 school year are U.S. History II (U.S. history since 1920), The Classical World (ancient Western civilizations), Comparative World Studies I and II (anthropological and comparative studies of cultures, current global conflicts, conflict resolution and international human rights) and Political Science and Constitutional Law.
In the past I have taught a humanities course, African Studies, U.S. History I and in-class support sections of most of these classes.
I am interested in social studies education, educational technology, Web 2.0 tools, inquiry based learning, project based learning, formative assessment, Understanding by Design, collaborative teaching and 21st Century Skills. This Our district is in the midst of curricular revision in light of the New Jersey High School Redesign Initiative and 21st Century Skills.
At Hunterdon Central I am a member of the initial cohort of teachers which piloted the Tablet PC, and since 2005 I have been using it frequently in my teaching. I am also a member of the initial cohort which piloted HC's Moodle course management system and I have been using it since 2007.
