Teaching Philosophy
“My teaching is motivated by compassion for my students; guided by recognition of the social, cultural, and historical contexts of my student’s lives; structured around the importance of processes of critical reading, writing, and thinking and constructive dialogue; and oriented towards a full engagement with the diverse communities of the university and southeast Michigan/northwest Ohio.”
