- About Me
My research concerns the immigration that resulted from the Haitian Revolution (1791-1809). Specifically, I look at those who arrived in Charleston, South Carolina, with a particular emphasis on the influence they exerted on the religious scene in Charleston.
In addition to my work as a historian, I direct the social studies education program at Winthrop University. In this capacity I teach social studies teaching methods courses and work with interns during their placements in public schools. We are an edTPA school, so I have experience with edTPA.
