Teaching Statement

I believe that students reach their highest academic potential when they feel supported in taking intellectual risks and have agency in shaping their classroom experience. That’s why the foundation of my teaching philosophy is the creation of a safe yet challenging classroom community in which both instructor and students are accountable to, and vulnerable with, each other.
