“One of the most awesome things about my job,” says Andrea Martin, “is that it is always an adventure.” It’s not hard to see why. As the History and Social Sciences Educator at Dupuy Alternative School in Birmingham, Alabama, Andrea teaches Geography, Civics, Ancient World History, Modern World History, U.S. History, Government and Economics.
Andrea has a B.A from the University of North Alabama and a Masters from the University of South Alabama. She has been teaching since 2014 and has been using BRI resources and attending BRI programs since 2017.
“I love the Bill of Rights Institute because they’ve opened so many doors for me and for my students with the materials they provide and the way they break down those materials. My students especially love studying the Supreme Court cases [Supreme Court DBQs].”
“One of the things I love most about my job is that I get to talk to the kids about how we can apply history to our daily lives,” says Andrea, “especially how we can study history, we can be fully present right now, and we can always change our future.”
