Prior to joining the College Events team at Trinity, Elliot Levesque worked in secondary education teaching History, Psychology, and Civics and Government. He also taught related courses for the University of Connecticut.

Pedagogically, the core of his teaching focuses on the students’ journey to make sense of the muddled past. To accomplish this, the students must understand history is not about what is right or wrong (although this is not trivial); it is about the grappling with varied and often contradictory information and making sense of that story. Relating this synthesis to others coherently and concisely is the second part of the journey.
