Project Based Learning Coordinator and High School Social Studies Teacher, Cheongna Dalton Foreign School in Incheon, South Korea
I have worked at Cheongna Dalton School for the past 4 years where I have had the opportunity to create three courses that previously did not exist at the school. One of the courses was AP Psychology. AP Psychology has been one of my favorite classes to teach during my tenure here. Students are encouraged to develop a better understanding of themselves and the world around them which greatly impacts their worldview.
Middle School History Teacher
The professors in the History Department at Hartwick College taught me how to look at history not as fact, but as a series of observations. The job of a historian isn’t to find facts as much as it’s to find a story. The professors taught me how to follow leads, how to contextualize historical events, and how to reinforce my own thoughts and opinions. Professors like Dr. Nishda nurtured my love for history, taught me how to focus, and encouraged me to continue my studies in history.
“The research and writing skills I learned as a history major prepared me well for my current studies.”
