I am a history teacher at Constantia Waldorf school in Cape Town, South Africa. I have been teaching history in the high school for four years and would really like to connect with other teachers about methodology and content - how to bring these concepts across in a way that is imaginative and experiential for learners.

Please allow me access to this forum so I may communicate in a professional space with other teachers. I currently teach high school science in a small Milwaukee Public School. I am looking ahead to teaching evolution and know that many of my students resist learning this content because they think that it challenges their religious beliefs.
