Teaching philosophy: Motivating students to become passionate about civic engagement on issues that are meaningful to them. I encourage them to explore their own interests in order to be connected to their learning processes and the greater community. I deeply value the unique perspectives that my diverse students bring and I endeavor to create an environment where all students feel comfortable to voice their ideas.
