My name is Todd Beach and I am a career teacher.  I have been teaching Social Studies for 28 years at the middle school and high school levels in the Minneapolis metropolitan area.

I completed my undergraduate degree in education at the University of Nebraska – Kearney, which was originally founded as a Teachers College.  I completed my Masters Degree at the University of Minnesota with a concentration in Curriculum & Instruction, before completing my Doctorate from the University of Sussex in England.

I also serve as a Lecturer at the University of Minnesota in the department of Curriculum and Instruction.
