Teaching Philosophy:

Love what you do; share that love; work always to become a community of learners. This means:

  • Each member of the class will have a voice in this community
  • We will learn by listening as well as sharing our thoughts, ideas, and observations with each other
  • We will support each other through the stressful moments
  • We will seek balance between reflection and expression
