Why I Teach

I encourage students to think about their courses within a broader context as well as how they intersect with the knowledge they bring to the classroom. My goal is to help them learn to think critically and see how new ideas can be applied to the world at large.

I love teaching because I get to interact with vibrant minds and remain "a student" myself. I appreciate that I can continue my intellectual pursuits and share them with others.
