Hey new students and families! Thanks for making use of the HUB. Since you're here, a few things about me that seem vaguely relevant: I'm originally from Minnesota, but I've spent most of my adult life teaching in New York City, Boston, and Salt Lake City. I moved back to Minnesota and started teaching at Kennedy in 2016. One of the most formative experiences in my teaching career was living in New Zealand for 6 months, researching history education as part of a Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching. I'm really interested in how we talk about difficult history and how each of our identities influence our perspective on the past. I have a B.A. in history from Hope College, an M.Ed. in Risk and Prevention from Harvard, and an M.Ed. in Education Leadership and Policy from the University of Utah. I live in Minneapolis and like to do outdoorsy things like camp, ski, bike, and kayak. The best history-related book I read this summer was The Storied City: The Quest for Timbuktu and the Fantastic Mission to Save its Past, by Charlie English.
