Bring Me to Your Classroom This School Year

I recently learned that I will not be returning to the classroom for the upcoming school year. This is certainly disappointing given the upcoming presidential election as well as the ongoing debate about Civil War monuments. What an exciting and challenging time to be teaching American history.

My loss, however, is your gain.

Working with students on the Civil War monuments controversy at the Ashley Hall School in Charleston, SC.

Without having to prepare my own classes I will have plenty of time to visit with your students via Zoom or Skype. I have roughly twenty years experience teaching high school history with a specialization in the Civil War era and historical memory. Over the past few years I have visited secondary level classrooms (public and private) across the country and worked with students on a number of topics.

They include:

  • The debate surrounding Civil War/Confederate monuments
  • The American Civil War, including more specialized topics
  • Reconstruction
  • Myths and Misconceptions about the American Civil War, including Black Confederates

I am more than happy to tailor my presentation to your specific needs and curriculum.

Please note that I do charge a fee for my services depending on the scope of the lesson and time. This can be negotiated given financial constraints, but I do have bills to pay. 🙂

Let’s get the conversation started. You can reach me at:

I am also available to speak with history/social studies departments that are considering or in the process of developing curricula specifically focused on the Civil War monuments controversy.

Hope to hear from you and best of luck getting started with what promises to be a challenging school year.
