Teaching Philosophy

“I strive to create critical thinkers through course material presented, current ev ents, and continuted student introspection. Our discussions deal with contemporary and past criminal justice system problems and successes, along with self-discovery, ethical angles, power disparities, and interrelatedness with problem-solving.”
