Why I Teach
I seek to teach the heart of students, as Blessed Brother Moreau calls us to do. This prepares my students to go forth and educate with courage and hope, in order to achieve a more just and equitable society.
As a teacher of teachers, I design courses that challenge and support students as they transition into their new profession. Through real classroom experience, engagement with their colleagues and deep reading into pedagogy, they become the type of teacher who inspired them to follow this path.
