My teaching philosophy is indebted to what I have learned from teaching some of the most diverse student bodies in the nation at research institutions, California State universities, and community colleges. Specifically, I have come to appreciate how a student’s successful cultivation of critical thinking and progress in oral and written communication thrive in an environment that maximizes inclusivity, equity, accessibility and puts students at the center of their education and its application. This includes creating incentives for students to discuss original arguments, using reciprocal peer learning exercises, and providing resources appropriate to the needs of each student, which enable all to achieve equally high results.
