I received my M.A. in History from Lehigh in 2012, while working concurrently full-time as a high school history teacher at The Hill School in Pottstown, PA. My studies at Lehigh proved invaluable, both in and out of the classroom. Thanks in large part to the outstanding teaching and guidance of the professors within the department, I grew tremendously as an educator in just over two years of course work. I was able to focus on specific content areas of interest, but also gained a depth and breadth of knowledge that I hadn't anticipated prior to beginning the program. Currently I am the Head of the History & Social Science Department at St. George's School in Middletown, RI. In addition, I hold the Anthony M. Zane Chair in History, awarded to recognize and promote excellence in history teaching, and also serve as an assistant coach for the Varsity Football and Boys' Varsity Ice Hockey teams.
