I currently teach US History to/since 1877 at Motlow State Community College and Middle Tennessee State University, where I also teach Introduction to Global Studies. I am always looking for ways to incorporate public history into my survey courses and make them more lively for my students. I am really enjoying teaching Global Studies. It’s great to have the opportunity to include some of my own interests in cultural landscapes and African history that don’t really fit into the US history survey curriculum. I’m also enjoying the freedom to use a more flexible approach to teaching with this smaller group of students.

I have also taught World History 1500 to the present and high school English.
