MyTeaching Philosophy, Briefly

My teaching philosophy is that diversity enhances learning. We are all of different races, nationalities, genders, sexual preferences, socio-economic backgrounds, and more. And because we have diverse experiences, learning occurs as we discuss our differences in relation to literature, writing, and life in general.

Outside Interests

I love reading, traveling, and writing. I write a blog that began in London over the summer 2016. Read about it and more recent adventures here:
