Philosophy

My central goal is to bring out individual potential by increasing student governance of learning to promote motivation and increase critical thinking skills. In my courses, you will typically find a mix of activities, lecture, discussion, and writing. I try to give students choice and voice in their learning whenever possible. I work to create a welcoming classroom environment that celebrates diversity and is accessible to all.
