I am a passionate social studies educator who believes the history classroom should be filled with intrigue, debate, and creativity. After being educated in the world of boring lectures and generic worksheets, I entered the teaching profession over ten years ago with an itch to make history come alive for students. Slowly I created activities to make history more relatable; through CSI investigations, in-class simulations, and structured debate exercises, my classroom quickly became the most popular in the building. Now, I am here to help your classroom become just as exciting.

As a full-time educator and content-creator, all of my resources come with years of experience that support their success. They come tested (and perfected) in order to heighten student engagement, increase comprehension, and instill that same love of passion that I’ve had my entire life. It is time to throw away the textbook and the boring lecture, and embrace the student-centered approach to make history come alive. With a strict adherence to the essential content, and an even deeper focus on providing a challenging and authentic learning experience, I am honored to serve you and your students’ needs. I cannot wait to meet you!


Wow, I am so glad that I bought this at the start of the school year! It’s my first time teaching U.S. history, and I use these lessons to breathe life into my district curriculum activities. Some of these (like the Constitution scavenger hunt) also make awesome pre-planned sub activities. Even though I don’t use every activity, I consider it money well-spent to know I have all these lessons ready to go if and when I want them. This packet has been a life-saver

This was a great way to get higher level thinking out of a topic that is typically dominated by pots and notes. LOVED IT!

Wow! This was my first Escape Room and my kids and I LOVED it! I teach 7th grd Soc. Studies. The kids who had a bit of a natural ability at figuring things out loved helping those who needed it. The directions were very detailed and lined out well! I will be making more purchases from Mr. E…Thank you for a great, quality product.
