    This is my third year teaching at North Hills. I earned my degree at Williamson College with a focus on humanities. I have lived in five states, but I am glad to be settled back in Texas. I have two children and another that is on the way. While the AP World History class presents a serious challenge for the work load (this is a college-level course!) it is incredibly rewarding in the breadth and depth of knowledge it unveils to the student. I love the course material and look forward to teaching this subject and learning more about it each year.
