I spent the last year as a paraeducator and was just hired for my first year of teaching in Manhattan, Kansas. I love learning about new and engaging ways to pull students into historical thinking, learning, and investigation. I was part of the first generation to grow up with technology as a child and am amazed at the exponential growth of technology today.
