Some of her very favorite classes to teach are U.S. Studies, World Civilizations, Civics and Performing Arts. Angee has been a lucky recipient of the History Teacher Scholar Award. This award is given by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History each year to thirty notable High School History Teachers within the United States.

She hopes all of her students will come away with a love of the democratic process, engaged in preserving the right to self-government, and understanding the long term influences of American history on those freedoms. When Angee is not reading about history; she can be found in the garden, on the ski slopes, hanging with her family or traveling to new places.
