Teaching Philosophy

The values and beliefs I bring into any classroom or learning environment


My general teaching philosophy is to meet students where they are and offer them opportunities to write for an authentic audience, so they understand how what they’re learning in the classroom connects to their lives beyond school.

My goal is for students to become more confident in their work and unique voices and to express themselves creatively and analytically. I do this by providing a personalized, supportive learning environment that challenges students by teaching them creative thinking, critical reasoning, and problem-solving skills
