I believe teaching is a dialectical encounter in the Gadamerian sense between the student and teacher. The student bring their life experience and the teacher brings her life experience to the classroom, which creates a synergy and dynamic encounter. I support students in founding their personal voices and passions in their studies and strive to inspire students to develop a love of learning and curiosity about the world.
