Watching my students grow and evolve is joy ...

I encourage students to view learning not just as the accumulation of information needed to pass a class, but rather as an arsenal of skills, strategies and knowledge to improve their lives and the lives of others they may serve as journalists. I believe this encourages independent thinking and establishes behavior for lifelong learning. College transformed my world, and I work to provide that same opportunity to my students.
