Teaching philosophy

As an educator, I conceptualize teaching as a relational process of co-constructing knowledge and experience. My teaching approaches, goals, and methods all center relationships: those between me and my students, those my students have with each other, and those my students have with the members of their communities. I am committed to IDEA approaches (inclusion, diversity, equity, and access) in the classroom not only because I believe in justice-oriented pedagogy but also because IDEA approaches build learning experiences that are situated in community. The following are three sincerely held core beliefs that guide my teaching:

I believe learning and teaching are community-oriented processes.  

I believe learning and teaching are learner-centered projects. 

I believe learning and teaching are creative and transformative tools.
