Teaching philosophy:
"My greatest endeavor, as a faculty member, is to expose students to methods of analysis and reflection that allow them to make substantial contributions to the world, both as professionals and as members of a local, national and global community. When they are able to approach the world as scholars, students can be more reflective about how their contributions make a substantial impact. I want students to be engaged thinkers and global citizens long after they have received their degrees. I hope to inspire students to learn not only what others are doing to change their field and the larger community but also, more importantly, how they can be the change they wish to see in the world."
