12th Grade Government and Economics

I've been teaching in the Minneapolis Public School District since 2008. I've had the rare pleasure to teach at over 50 public schools in Minneapolis, and out of all of them, I chose to teach at North. I love the strong sense of communitity that runs through the halls of North High, the intimate classrooms where students get more face-time with their teachers, and the freedom to integrate the arts into my curriculum. I enjoy teaching Government and Economics because it prepares our students to be involved members of socieity. Students learn that they have a voice in this world, and they can change it to better serve themselves and their communities. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy writing and recording music, photography, and traveling the world.
