Front and center of tomorrow's society – learn smarter, teach harder
The following video is a chronicle of the curriculum I created and used for the first three years teaching high school students in the Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
In general, I utilize my training as a historian, academic knowledge of economics, and personal experience in the private sector guide my approach to designing curricula. I used reports from various governmental and non-governmental agencies, national and international sources, experienced local educators and students, and personal interactions to create the financial literacy, career development, and entrepreneurship curriculum for the English language learners in the Abu Dhabi high schools in which I worked.
Coupling rigorous learning standards, high expectations, and entertainment is a trademark of my style of curriculum design and instruction. The video chronicles students from my 2010-2013 eleventh and twelfth-grade students in Abu Dhabi.
