I’m an Andrew W. Mellon Engaged Scholar Initiative Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Texas at Austin. I have over twelve years of experience in the field of education, having been employed as a museum educator, high school teacher, undergraduate lecturer, and graduate-level instructor. My dedication to effective history pedagogy stems from a desire to make the study of the past more engaging, accessible, and lively. History is much more than memorizing important names, dates, and events. Rather, as an argumentative and interpretative discipline, history is the cornerstone to developing an active citizenry in the twenty-first century.
