Sally Stanhope is a teacher with thirteen years of experience who seeks to equip her students with the critical thinking skills and creativity to succeed in high school and beyond. After graduating magna cum laude from Davidson College, she joined Teach for America and taught elementary Special Education and fourth grade for three years. Finding that historical questioning best taught students how to thoughtfully engage with the world around them, Stanhope went on to become a history teacher. Since then, she has become a historian in her own right. In 2012, she graduated with a Masters in History from Georgia State University with a concentration in world history. She has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals and taught a variety of history classes that have ranged from the standard high school staples like Advanced Placement United States History and College Preparatory World History to more adventurous seminars like Roots of the Contemporary World and International History of The U.S. through Novels and Films.
