Pam earned a Ph.D. in Political Science from Emory University and then began her first career as a Research Associate at AARP. Following years of researching issues related to the aging process, Pam shifted her attention to a much younger age cohort, returning to school and earning a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Johns Hopkins University. Embarking on a second career as a high school social studies teacher, over the past 15 years Pam shared her love of learning about history and current events with her students at Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School. As a teacher of both AP World History and AP Comparative Government, Pam prepared her many students for AP exams while also providing them with a strong foundation in research and writing skills for college. Pam was selected by the College Board on a number of occasions to attend the annual scoring gatherings of educators from around the world in both subject areas.
Pam recently retired from Montgomery County Public Schools in order to spend more time with her young grandchildren. She looks forward to continuing her passion for teaching social studies as a tutor, knowing that all students can be successful when they are engaged and supported in the studies.
