My teaching philosophy is that everyone is a teacher, every individual has unique gifts and talents, experiences and perceptions from which others can benefit and learn. I want my students to believe they have much to offer. If at the end of the semester they do believe that, I feel I have done my job effectively. I want my students to be able to describe Modernism or define montage, of course; but, more importantly, I want them to explore life, literature and culture with great passion, commitment and care.
