I am currently working to finish a PhD in English with a specialization in 19th Century Interdisciplinary Studies. The cracks of time I have between teaching and my own studies are cemented with family moments.

Philosophy of Education
As an educator, my goal is to inspire all my students to become learners. My teaching assignment is English, but that merely describes an area of expertise from which I draw ideas and material to foster curiosity and promote critical thinking. In Teaching for Joy and Justice, Linda Christensen says that teaching is coaxing the brilliance out of students. My greatest academic joy, is to witness my students discovering their God given brilliance and to assist them in their learning journeys.
