Approach to Teaching:

I see learning as an individual and communal process of transformation. As an educator-practitioner, I am both a facilitator of that transformation and part of the community that is transformed. I enable transformative learning in my courses by explicitly valuing students’ diverse experiences, by embedding the classroom within the community, and by engaging students in critically-reflexive processes that model professional standards of practice.
