I am pleased to be joining you at Riverdale this year! I am originally from Kansas, taught in Italy for a while, and then have been downtown in Greenwich Village for the past 15 years. Now I am lucky to be teaching you.
We'll be learning about the promise and reality of the American Dream as we explore the history of the United States.
I love teaching, and I especially love middle school students.
I hope you'll join me on a journey of discovery as we uncover the past. Not every American story is an easy one, but in the process of telling the truth, you'll emerge as expert historians and uncover your own abilities as thinkers, researchers, and writers.
