Eric is currently employed as a seventh grade US History teacher at Daniel Morgan Middle School in Winchester, Virginia. He quickly discovered that by combining technology, hands on activities, and the use of his own self-designed interactive notebook, his classroom was transformed into a fun and productive learning environment. His successes were fueled by ideas and suggestions from his students, his teaching assistants, and much trial and error. He based his educational philosophy on his past experiences gained as a U.S. Army officer, a career in the business sector, and from his personal observations and real world experiences. It is his goal to create a DynamicClassroom Project of like minded educators who seek to help other teachers enjoy similar success in the classroom.
