Teaching

PHILOSOPHY
I am an enthusiastic educator who appreciates the scientific aspect of teaching. A degree in Education, several graduate courses on collegiate teaching, and extensive faculty development have equipped me with evidence on what works to enrich student learning and promote educational equity. You can read the teaching philosophy statement below to learn how this evidence has shaped my teaching philosophy and specific teaching strategies. In short, my teaching follows three principles: (1) students learn with people they know, (2) students learn when they do things, (3) students learn in equitable classrooms.
