Why I Teach
I view the classroom as a collaborative space. I learn as much from my students as they do from me. During my courses, we challenge one another to think harder.
Teaching is a pleasure, and I feel lucky to do it. Each semester feels like a new experience. I also enjoy seeing students master new skills and gain confidence in their abilities. In addition, being at a small school like St Edward’s allows me to watch individuals grow during their time here and become amazing people.
