CVDownload CV

“I love the close interaction with the students that teaching at MNU allows. Through small classes, advising sessions, and the familiarity that builds over several semesters, I get to know the strengths and weaknesses of every student in the History and Social Studies major. I am able to tailor my classes and assignments in order to challenge them in specific ways or allow them to shine based on their particular abilities.”
