Hello Historians and Criminologists!

My name is Damany Willingham. I have been an educator at Paloma Valley High School since 2016. Currently, I am teaching the United States (US) History, Criminology, and Youth and Family Law courses.  I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Phoenix in 2015. I have a Master of Education in Teaching from the University of Southern California (Fight On!) in 2016. Currently, I am attending Grand Canyon University (GCU) working on my doctoral degree in Psychology (Cognition and Instruction).  I am a part of "The World's Finest" club.  I am a retired Master Sergeant who served with honor for 22 years in the United States Marine Corps.  

I use CANVAS as the learning management system for US History/Criminology/Youth and Family Law.
