I have been teaching in classrooms and museums for a decade. In my teaching, I use engaging learning methods such as projects, site visits, and practical hands-on activities to encourage students to learn skills that help them tackle real-world problems. 


Most recently, I edited "An Educator's Handbook: Teaching about the Ancient World." This book provides open-access teaching activities for any educator to use. Download the book (free open access) here

As I am interested in including different perspectives and voices in my classes, I am always looking for guest speakers and collaborators. Recently I started this list to enable educators teaching online to invite others as guest speakers to their classrooms. You can also find me on Skype a Scientist, Request a Woman Scientist, Women also Know History, and Women of Ancient History.

Here are some of my recent courses:
