Dr. Ray Sheppard, Ed.D.

50% Teacher, 80% History Nerd, 100% bad at math

I’m a full-time community college history and government instructor in eastern North Carolina. While I have years of classroom experience (which I thoroughly enjoy), most of my current teaching is in the online context as I have assumed various administrative responsiblities within my specific college, and the North Carolina Community College System.

Life isn’t all work, however! When I’m away from the office and the classroom, I enjoy participating in World War II based Living History events. I find these family-friendly events are not only fun for people of all ages, but help bring historical events to life. It is my hope that such events will inspire and encourage more people study our fascinating history!

I also enjoy kayaking when I can. And I have a dog, I guess.
