What is important for your students to take away from your classes?
“It is important for my students to take away a sense of self from my classes. Thus, understanding who they are, who they aspire to be, and their contribution and responsibility to society. Many of my classes focus on Connected Learning through work with non-profit organizations. Through such work, it is my goal to help students find their inner voice and be able to actualize that voice both in the classroom and eventually their job field.”
