“History is our collective wisdom passed down through generations of what it means to be human. It teaches, advises, and warns, and it gives us a sense of identity and connection across time and place. But I don't teach history; I teach students. My goal as a teacher is to help each student find and refine their system of learning that will prepare them for an ever-changing world and to help students find their passion and to strive to leave the world a little better than we found it."
