I am a teacher influencer interested in growing my consulting brand. I want to help teachers teach history & social studies better. I am an expert in engagment (check out History in the Kitchen & my podcast!), nonfiction reading strategies, classroom management, building and refining social studies & history courses, and diversifying social studies & history curriculum to tell a greater, more whole story. I would love to help market brands that could help teachers do their jobs more efficintly. Self-care for teachers is also something I believe in and push, as you can't pour from an empty cup!

George Washington loved hoecakes. He ate them for breakfast covered with butter and honey and drank hot tea along with them. We love pancakes. And you should add the chocolate chips. #pancakes #historynerd #foodstagram #foodblogger #foodforfoodies #historyfoodie #history #georgewashington #breakfast #chocolate #chocolatechips #teachersofig #teachergram #teacherblogger #historyteacher

You are going to talk about some really heavy stuff in your history and social studies classes. How are you going to get your students comfortable with opening up from day one? Solution: Brave Spaces. Rather than rules, my classes talk about what a brave space in our classroom looks like (and doesn't look like!) and then we make it visual and refer back to it all year long. Creating a brave space and a trusting atmosphere is VITAL for a successful class. The original Brave Space lesson can be found from @facinghistory. How will you create a Brave Space? Need help?

The #firstdayofschool is coming! How do you plan on greeting your students? Hopefully, you're not going over rules and procedures- more on rules and procedures in another post. No kid wants to sit through 8 periods of getting talked to. They're going to zoom out and not remember anything you said, anyway! Make that first day memorable! I can't emphasize more that you should leverage that time to get to know your students. The more you know about them and build trust with them, the better your class is going to be ALL YEAR. Trust me! Need some help figuring out specifically what to do? Send me a DM or leave a comment below. I can help you plan. #backtoschoolwithheart #backtoschool #students #teachersofinstagram #highschool #teacherlife #kindergarten #middleschool #teachersfollowteachers #teachers #elementary #homeschool #backtowork #scuola #schoollife #classroom #schooldays #iteach #historyteacher #SEL #socialemotionallearning #teacherblogger #teachercoach #teachermentor #educationiskey

Why did you become a teacher? At first, I didn't even want to be a teacher. I wanted to be in Broadway musicals and my first major in college was musical theatre! But as I reflected on what I really, truly wanted, it was to have an impact on people. I wanted make people learn, understand, feel, empathize, and think deeply. That's when I turned to history, politics, and pedagogy, because this career gives me the fulfillment I seek. Could I have done that as an actress? Absolutely! Our friends in theatre do that every single day. I just do it differently as an academic, and I'm so glad. History isn't dead guys and dates. It is a living, moving, explanation of who we are, who we were, and hopefully helps give us direction as to where we want to go. This is true for our own histories, our local history, and wider histories of the world. ... and don't worry, I still do some performing in my classes. Why do you teach? If you're not a teacher, why do you do what you do? I really want to know what drives you. xo- CA #classroom #education #historyteacher #socialstudiesteacher #iteachhistory #iteachsocialstudies #iteach #iteachtoo #learning #school #teach #teacher #teacherblogger #teachergram #teacherlife #teacherofinstagram #teachers #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #teachersofinsta #teachersofinstagram #teachersofthegram #teacherstuff #teachertips #teaching #targetteachers

I’m soaking up EVERY moment I have left of #teachersummer .No one can deny 21-22 was a hard year. For as much joy as the students brought me, everyone in our community needed some rest and relaxation by the end of the year! Whether it’s swimming in the pool 🏊‍♀️ , fishing at the lake 🐠 , sitting at the beach 🏖, or going to a museum, I’ve been having as much fun as I can. What have you been doing this summer? If your summer is done what’s your favorite memory? ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #teachersfollowteachers #teachers #teachersofig #teacherspayteachers #teacherslife #teachersofinsta #igteachers #teachersofthegram #teachersrock #teachersbelike #historyteacher #teacherstuff #targetteachers #weareteachers #teachersofinstagram #teacherstatus #teacherssupportteachers

Every History in the Kitchen ends with a takeaway-- what is it that struck you during the lesson? What connections do you see to the present? What themes are there? This is a great way to end lessons at school, too. Help your students connect the past and present, make connections across time, and really reflect on the material. You can share your takeaways, too! As always, History in the Kitchen is raising money for Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in memory of my mom.

🤩The excitement over school supplies continues. Check out what I found at @christmastreeshops ! It’s a drawer organizer with charging ports on top. It’s a perfect match for my @lillypulitzer themed classroom. LOVE IT, and I love going to CTS to find some very cool things for my classroom (and my house, too!) ⭐️ Classroom decor not your jam? That’s fine!! You don’t need a decorative classroom to be a good teacher! You just need to be you!! ❤️What are some of your favorite places to shop? Or some of your favorite #backtoschool finds? . .⁣ .📸 @meremarie03 thanks for the great photo!!

Tonight’s test kitchen is #nofilter and DELICIOUS! The 1906 brownie recipe came out great, with a couple of adaptations. It tastes a lot like a cookie cake, as it isn’t as chocolate-y as todays brownie. 🍫 .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #historyinthekitchen #historynerd #historyteacher #iteach #iteachtoo #learning #history #teach #teacher #teacherblogger #teachergram #teacherlife #teacherofinstagram #teachers #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofig #teachersofinsta #teachersofinstagram #teachersofthegram #teacherstuff #bakingfromscratch #teaching ⁣#instafood #foodstagram #recipe #cookingathome #recipeshare

Everyone was a first year teacher once! #tbt to 2006, my first year, my first overnight trip with students, my basically first everything with my own classroom! I had the best mentors and best colleagues around and that’s what helped me through. I’m glad to help you too! I’ve been teaching history and social studies in the upper elementary and middle grades for the last 17 years. Draw upon my expertise whenever you’d like! .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #throwbackthursday #firstyearteacher #newteacher #americanhistory #ushistory #historyteacher #socialstudiesteacher #socialstudies #iteach #middleschool #highschool #elementaryschool #learn #historymatters #teachersofinstagram #knowledgeispower #teachingideas #educationconsultant #teachingresources #motivation #education #love #school #historyteachersofinstagram

Besides cooking for History in the Kitchen, I love cooking for my family- then doing the research behind what I’ve made! Biscuits were originallybaked twice and they were hard and dry- perfect soldier food. The buttermilk biscuit came later, along with other kinds of biscuits. Developments on kitchen technology helped this process along! #biscuits #buttermilkbiscuits #historyinthekitchen #baking #bakingfromscratch #homechef #instagood #instateacher #teachersofinstagram #history #historicalfood #historyteacher #teacher #historyteachersrock

Whose Independence (Updated and digital!)

Last year I decided it was high time to use other sources in addition to the Declaration of Independence to explore what the Declaration has meant to different people at different periods of time. What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?” and the Declaration of Sentiments against the Declaration of Independence, and it was an eye-opening experience for students to see that there were numerous, varied responses to the Declaration over time. all men are created equal” didn’t apply to everyone, but reading real people’s responses and starting to empathize with their hurt and frustration helps them see this concept in a new way. This year, I also included a Declaration of Independence written by the Freedom School students of St. John’s Methodist Church in Palmer’s Crossing Mississippi in 1964.
