Instructor
Traveling the world through books is my area of expertise! With an academic background in Children's and Young Adult Literature, I’m passionate about equipping teachers to engage their students in meaningful ways with the literature they read and discuss. I hope to educate teachers to understand how literature can equip their students to connect more strongly with those around them and to strengthen their empathy and compassion for others who are different from them. Stories about historical events, when used alongside primary documents, can deliver powerful and transformative educational experiences.
