"So the pupil will transform and fuse together the passages that [she] borrows from others, to make of them something entirely [her] own; that is to say, [her] own judgement.

[Her] education, [her] labour, and [her] study have no other aim but to form this." Michel de Montaigne, Essays (1580)

Teaching Philosophy

Embolden all students, regardless of disciplinary focus to. . .

    • embrace uncertainty.
    • amass knowledge only to question new bodies of knowledge.
    • delight in critical thinking.
    • ask why things matter—why literature matters, why the humanities & arts matter, why education matters, why life matters.

I do this through a commitment to active learning, interdisciplinary engagement, multi-modal writing assignments, and digital, project-based learning.
