Teaching Philosophy:

I like to provide a very strong sense of structure for each course, and then let students explore the material together as a community. Although my rules for the classroom are firm, they are in place in order to foster a sense of common ground and respect between students. I function as a facilitator and a guide within these landmarks of subject matter, critical discussions and writing assignments while students are encouraged to find and expand on their own points of view, building their perspectives, modes of thinking, and ways of writing.
