Teaching Philosophy

“In the Dominican tradition, I design learning experiences that value the unique gifts of students and draw upon their experiences. Together, through reading, dialogue and reflection, we build caring communities that search for truth through study. I believe in engagement, accountability, and high standards for my students and myself.”
