The 2021/21 school year will be my fourth year at BOYCP, and my 7th year as a full-time teacher. I teach Ethnic Studies & Global Politics, and I also coach tennis and advise the student voice committee. I've also taught Civics and World Studies. Before working at BOYCP, I completed my Masters in Education with a focus on Social Studies education and English as a Second Language instruction at University of Wisconsin-Madison. Prior to that, I worked at Abaarso School in Somaliland, an autonomous region of Somalia, for two years where I taught both English and World History from a perspective that centered African and Middle Eastern history.
