TEACHING PHILOSOPHY:
(More detailed statement available)

My work as a professional educator is rooted in an ever-deepening commitment to teaching and scholarship in a spirit of cooperation. I enjoy the academic environment for its intellectual vitality, constant invitation to learn, and for the opportunities it offers for engagement with colleagues and students toward a common goal. I find my field of study particularly energizing, especially as I observe my students grow in confidence and independence.

My own growth has included an increasing conviction that cooperation is superior to competition as a way of life. I make a conscious effort to incorporate a cooperative approach in my teaching and in my relationships with colleagues. I flourish in a supportive learning environment and seek to help create such an atmosphere for others. I find deep satisfaction walking away at the end of a day or at the end of a semester knowing I have participated in helping my students become more active learners. Even greater satisfaction comes in knowing that this has been a collaborative effort.
