Office Hours

I have taught in a broad range of historical topics. Such diversity in teaching allows me to be flexibility in my topic choice and area of expertise. My training allows me to handle different pedagogical approaches as well as the ability to convey different content areas.  I have specialized in the history of the Americas and creating a global perspective for minority populations.
