What do you love most about what you teach? I love teaching U.S. History because it is filled with compelling stories that help us understand the world we live in and equip us to be effective citizens and decision-makers.

What do you love most about Ben Lippen? The students make teaching at Ben Lippen a privilege and a blessing. Every year, I get to share life with amazing young men and women. It is a joy to help them expand their academic and critical thinking skills. My greatest joy is laughing together.
