With a passion for unraveling the tapestry of world history, my journey led me through Calvin University, where I delved into the complexities of our shared past. Armed with a deep understanding of global events and cultures, I bring a dynamic approach to teaching. Whether it's ancient civilizations or modern geopolitics, I strive to make the past come alive for my students. Let's embark on a journey through time together, exploring the triumphs and tribulations that have shaped our world. Join me in uncovering the fascinating stories that connect us all.
