In all my courses, I strive to create a community of learners whose diversity of educational and life experiences provide a rich resource for pedagogical moments. This flexible mode of analysis, drawn from a connection of students to each other and the text, creates a welcoming and comfortable student-centered experience. I find this focus instrumental in guiding the talents of those at a crossroad. My teaching practices aim for students to extend the intellectual rigor demanded in the classroom to life outside of it.
