Teaching Statement: My goals as an instructor are to help my students discover their own voice, by which they may express themselves articulately and eloquently; to provide them with the tools for thinking critically, which I encourage them to utilize to question the wisdom they have received and to challenge its status as possessing ‘unassailable truth’; and to instill in them a deep sense of empathy, that they may use their knowledge to better themselves and their society in whatever capacity they can. My goals, in short, are to help my students attain intellectual autonomy and to encourage them to be healthy, productive citizens who actively engage with their communities.
