Steve Sherman -
This will be my 17th year teaching American history 12 of which have been at the AP level. I’ve had a number of wonderful opportunities that have helped me grow as a teacher. Including working as a reader for the AP exam, being an item writer and member of the test specification committee for the New York State Regents exam as well as being a member of the GED test development committee. I've taught a number of in-service classes in the past including courses on web design, wiki's and power points. I am married with two children and enjoy exercising (kind of) movies, and all kinds of sports. I've had a number of websites over the years but recently I've been using Google sites and so far it has really fit my needs.
