Why I Teach

I center my teaching approach around my students. I believe that together as a group, we build knowledge as learners. In the classroom, I create a space for open, lively dialogue that addresses authentic, real-world problems. I invite debate and collaboration.

My goal is that what students learn in my class will make a difference in their lives — and in their careers as teachers. Education is the key to the future and my students have a vital role to play.
