Tanya's Story

Tanya has spent the last decade teaching high school history at MICDS in St. Louis, Missouri. She came to this community after completing her PhD in history at Washington University, and she loves being in the classroom. When she’s not teaching or thinking about teaching and history, she’s usually reading books for fun, hanging out with her son and husband, or re-watching Doctor Who.

“Nine hundred years of time and space and I’ve never met anybody who wasn’t important before.” ― The 11th Doctor, Doctor Who
