Middle School Teacher

I have been a middle school social studies teacher in New York City for the past 14 years, most recently at PS/IS 229 in Brooklyn. In addition to teaching eighth-grade social studies, I facilitate a mock trial enrichment class. I believe in teaching American history without any deletions or omissions: the good, the bad, and the ugly.  Introducing lesser known historical figures accomplishes this goal.
