My goal as an instructor is to inspire students to feel invested in their learning by creating educational experiences which will foster students’ lasting personal and professional growth.
To this end, my teaching is guided by three core practices: (1) leading with and inspiring enthusiasm for the material, (2) creating a learning environment of support and encouragement, and (3) helping students nurture the professional skills they need to succeed.
