About Teaching

Society is a work-in-progress that depends on people engaging one another to raise questions, address issues, and create solutions to shared problems. Schools can serve as a place of possibility where students learn to create community by discovering similarities and develop empathy by exploring their differences. My goal is to inspire students to envision the kind of lives they want to live and develop the efficacy necessary to make that vision real. Teaching is about helping students cultivate the mental (head), emotional (heart), physical (hand), and social (helix) potential to create meaningful lives for themselves and to make a difference in the lives of others.
