  • The 2020-2021 school year will be my first as an instructor at East Early College High School and my sixth year teaching at the high school level, as well as teaching courses at Lone Star College.  This year, I have the pleasure of teaching Dual Credit U.S. History in conjunction with Houston Community College, as well as Advanced Placement U.S. History and U.S. Government.  

     

    I was born and raised in Saginaw, Michigan.  As a first generation college student, the transition to university was not an easy one for me.  Yet with strong mentors and the support of my family, I earned my bachelor of arts degree from Saginaw Valley State University in May of 2008.  I later relocated to Houston to begin graduate study at the University of Houston.  I completed my Master's of Arts in History in May of 2013 before continuing coursework in pursuit of a PhD that fall.  During my study at UH, I met my wonderful husband.  We were married in June of 2018 and made Houston our permanent home.  We currently live in Midtown with our three cats, Sanka, Bianca, and Monty

     

    Aside from history, my biggest passion is TRAVEL!  My passport includes stamps from 28 countries--and counting!  My favorite places I've been are those with the best food--like Spain, Colombia, and Vietnam.  I can't wait to get back to traveling, but in the meantime, Houston offers some of the best food in the country and my husband and I have been trying all sorts of new restaurants and cuisines.  I also like to read, ride my bike, binge watch tv and movies, and cheer on the Houston Dynamo.  I usually stay pretty busy, but I wouldn't want it any other way

     

    I am looking foward to getting to know each of you!  I am thrilled to a part of the Falcon Family at EECHS!

    Advanced Placement U.S. History
    In AP U.S. History, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in nine historical periods from approximately 1491 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change. The course also provides eight themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: American and national identity; work, exchange, and technology; geography and the environment; migration and settlement; politics and power; America in the world; American and regional culture; and social structures.

     

    Advanced Placement U.S. Government
    AP U.S. Government and Politics provides a college-level, nonpartisan introduction to key political concepts, ideas, institutions, policies, interactions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the constitutional system and political culture of the United States. Students will study U.S. foundational documents, Supreme Court decisions, and other texts and visuals to gain an understanding of the relationships and interactions among political institutions, processes, and behaviors. They will also engage in disciplinary practices that require them to read and interpret data, make comparisons and applications, and develop evidence-based arguments. In addition, they will complete a political science research or applied civics project.
