Why I Teach

I enjoy sharing my enthusiasm for my area of study and modeling critical thinking for my students. I treat them as thinking people — and I’m modest about what I can add to their world. Also, I make it a priority to treat all of my students with the utmost respect.

Anthropology is one of my favorite things to talk about, and students find the subject almost as fascinating as I do. Overall, teaching is a huge challenge, and I strive constantly to improve and innovate.
