"I regard teaching as an opportunity to mentor students in their quest to fulfill their goals in life. Consistent with the Dominican tradition of reflection, exploration of vital questions, social justice, and participation in community, my conception of learning is that it is socially-constructed, not received. The role of teacher is to inspire and coach students to learn and think critically in a collaborative environment. The responsibility for learning rests with the student. To that end, my goal is to engage students by helping them find relevance in the course, and to examine their existing personal, professional, and social assumptions, so they can grow beyond them."
