I have been a social studies instructor at Lake Region High School for 3 years. I teach World History, AP U.S. History, and a Dual-Enrollment Polk State College Humanities course. I attended Florida Southern College where I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art History, and I also attended the University of South Florida where I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Art History. History and culture have always fascinated me and I am excited to share my interest in history with my students. My expectation is for students to work hard, enjoy what they are learning, and make connections between the past and present. I believe students need to have an understanding of the past in order to be better prepared for the future.
