About

My experience with local political organizing exposed me to a fundamental need for better history and civic education in public schools. My work in politics along with my interest in history brought me to the MAT program at UIC which combines the rigor of a traditional history MA program with a comprehensive pedagogical methods curriculum. I intend to teach in Chicago Public Schools upon my completion of the program.
