Teaching at Leyden Since Last Century

I've been teaching at Leyden since 1996, and I've taught Economics since 1997.  Over my career here, I've also taught US History for 16 years and Sociology for 12 years.

Each summer, I present week-long workshops around the country with economists who are college professors.  These workshops "teach teachers how to teach economics." My favorite one to teach is called "Economic Forces in American History."
