I've been a social studies teacher in East Orange, NJ since 2007. I've taught US History, World History, and AP Government and Politics. I'm a huge proponent of civics education, and I maintain a website about civics ed. I share resources, discuss policy and standards, and put a spotlight on civic educators in practice.
I'm also an active member of my union. I'm the Vice President of the East Orange Education Association and the Secretary of the Essex County Education Association. I serve on NJEA's Congressional Contact Committee, and I've been a delegate to the NEA RA since 2015.
