US Museum Teacher Fellowship Year: 2010
Current Teaching Location: Ponderosa High School
Courses Taught on the Holocaust: Units in AP European History, units in US History 1865-1945, and a semester course: Rise of Nation-State Germany
What do we hope that students come away with: I work diligently to provide accurate information, empower student voice, and provide a launching point for further inquiry. The Holocaust occurred following a deliberate and protracted series of decisions to dehumanize large numbers of people. Education related to these events must seek to re-humanize and create a sense of purpose in young people to stand against policy and action that leads to, or is the product of, prejudice, hatred, and oppression.
Began Teaching: 1996 (edit)
