What is your teaching philosophy for Lasell courses?

“My teaching is grounded in the belief that all people are creative. Art is a tool for exercising creativity, building self-awareness and making meaning from ones experiences. My goal as an educator is for every student to discover and explore what inspires them to do great work. I ask students to step outside the familiar and embrace new ways of applying personal interests to class projects in an effort to build critical thinking and interdisciplinary connections. Through hands-on, active learning, I encourage students to examine essential questions in engaging and relevant ways, while aligning course content with the skills and knowledge necessary to prepare students for success after Lasell.”
