Integrity is choosing courage over comfort.IT'S CHOOSING WHAT'S RIGHT OVER WHAT'S FUN, FAST, OR EASY; AND IT'S PRACTICING YOUR VALUES, NOT JUST PROFESSING THEM.Brene' Brown
About Mrs. Greene
I grew up between Wisconsin, Minnesota, and North Carolina. After my first year of college at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, I transferred to NC State University and graduated with a BA in History and a certification to teach secondary social studies. I have been teaching in North Carolina since 1999 and have earned and renewed a National Board Certification in Social Studies/History. Although I have had experience instructing in three different counties, I currently teach in my own neighborhood here in Raleigh at Broughton High School.
Within the world of education, I am most passionate about taking the art of teaching into the 21st century. I am an advocate for bringing the science of psychology into my pedagogy, grade reform, exploratory and collabortative learning, and enhancing student engagement with technology in the face to face classroom. I have written curriculum for both American History and Psychology locally, for North Carolina, and for the International Baccalaureate Organization. And, I had the opportunity to be a member of the APA Summit on High School Psychology in 2017, and continue to work within the TOPSS organization.
Besides teaching psychology and American history, I co-advise the Broughton Brain Club, the Capital Links- a social club for students with autism, and am in leadership positions in my school. And in my spare time, I am an active member of several education and psychology organizations, I enjoy cooking with my husband, spending time with my son, playing my gray kitty- Gertie, hosting friends and family for dinners, practicing yoga, hiking the Appalachian Trail, knitting, and vegetable gardening.
