This is my 9th year teaching at Edison High School, I am teaching AP US history and AP World History. I earned my BA at the University of Tulsa in History, and my MA at Texas A&M also in history. My research interests include 20th century US military/ diplomatic history, and Latin American history. My masters thesis was on US-Guatemalan relations during the Johnson administration. I have traveled throughout the US and internationally in South America. I am an avid backpacker and rock climber.
