Teaching

Philosophy

My central goal is to bring out individual potential by increasing students’ ownership of their learning so that they can become lifelong learners and critical thinkers. 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. I am always learning, adapting, and (hopefully) improving my pedagogy based on experience, feedback, and scholarship of teaching and learning.
