I believe teaching should be a cooperative experience with students, that they should work as co-creators of knowledge. I implement this philosophy by working to engage students as coequals whenever possible. This leads me to a dialogue with my students where we discuss not only the material but how it relates to their lives. I also strive to always explain the purpose of assignments, focusing on what I expect from students as well as what they should expect from me.
