Introduction
I live in Northern Virginia and have been a high school IB History teacher since 1999.  In the past, I have done consulting work for the IB as an MYP Programme moderator and a DP History Paper 1 examiner.  
Bragging rights
I have two grown daughters who are wonderful (and both are employed -- added bonus) and I have now joined the ranks of the empty-nesters. I lived in Germany from 1988 to 1991 (saw the Berlin Wall come down and was there for Desert Storm), and have been to places like Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Wales, and Portugal -- all for different educational programs.
