I teach US history surveys, Writing History, public history, and museum studies at Grand Valley State University. Before joining the faculty at GVSU, I taught at Middle Tennessee State University (US history, Tennessee history, and Global Studies), Motlow State Community College (US history), and Lord Fairfax Community College (World History from 1500). I also spent some time teaching World History and English at the high school level. I enjoy sharing my passion for history with my students, and I’m looking forward to learning how to run Reacting to the Past games with my students in the future.
