Why I Teach

My goal is to provide my students with the information and tools to analyze topics and draw well-informed conclusions on their own. I seek to challenge my students to be more critical in their thinking and to become more open to voices and opinions that fall outside of their everyday lives.

My mission is to prepare young people not only to succeed in their chosen fields, but also to be active members of their communities.
