Teaching

I believe in two mantras: “Be the Difference” and “Cura Personalis.” These two beliefs, one challenging students to maximize their capabilities both in their lives and their communities and the other focusing on care for the whole person, are the guiding lights to how I approach teaching and my classroom environments.

This is the bedrock to my designing of curriculum for the classes I have taught. This page offers a jumping off point for my reflections, evaluations, and sharing of curriculum I’ve created and courses I’ve taught in my time in the collegiate setting. I’ve also taught a number of courses at the high school level and those materials can be provided upon request.
