Teaching Philosophy

In all my courses, I foster the idea of community through assignments that join writing with meaningful participation. I value my role as a leader but also as a facilitator of the class, and emphasize to students that they cannot remain passive. There are several methods that I use to achieve an equal balance between the more vocal and more reserved populations of students. One is learning communities, which work together and then are responsible for presenting each week. By meeting the student where they are in their life and trajectory, I am responsible for fostering their connection to their future goals.
