Teaching

 

Check out my work in Roosevelt’s classrooms in our new video!

In the classroom, my goal is to create student-centered learning environments that combine critical thinking skills with problem-solving and collaborative tools that will make our graduates competitive on the global job market. My responsibility to our students does not end when class is dismissed – quite the opposite. My door is always open for extra help and discussions, independent studies, honors theses, careerĀ  counseling, and of course, casual conversations about politics, baseball, zombies and the future of civilization.
