Biography

My philosophy of teaching is based on a framework of caring that includes caring for self as well as others. I believe that the student teacher relationship should be one of collegiality with the student as teacher and the teacher as student. I also believe that it is important to honor each student as an individual with unique talents. Within this framework, learning becomes an opportunity for personal and intellectual growth for students and teachers.
