Why I Teach

My work is not to provide answers but to create a safe environment where learning can happen. I’m convinced that most limits to learning are in our own minds. It’s exciting to see my students experience the rewards when they can push beyond these limits.

I love the work, but most of all I love the students. It is a privilege to share some of the rich opportunities and genuine love of learning that I experienced from my teachers when I was a New College student.
