Hello my name is Cameron Towne and I teach Modern World History at APEX Academy. I am passionate about teaching students to use the past to to think critically about our own time and develop the skills to express themselves clearly. I first became interested in teaching these communication skills when I worked at the Writing Center at UC San Diego where I helped hundreds of students make the transition to college level writing. I attended the University of California, San Diego where I earned a B.A. in History. I am currently completing a Master of Arts in Teaching History at Bard College.
