“To teach is not to transfer knowledge but to create the possibility for the production or construction of knowledge.”

I see my teaching as contributing to a larger political project that encourages critical discourse and democracy, and questions structures of oppression and inequality. Experiential learning, critical reflection and democratically structured classrooms are the building blocks of my teaching practice. My teaching is most successful when I push my students to tackle big questions using diverse evidence from text, personal experience and diverse theoretical literatures.
