My teaching mission is to empower learners (youth and educators) with skills and strategies for connecting with others to share and critique ideas with civility and compassion. As a former broadcaster and English as a Second Language teacher, communication has always been a central function of living in communities, both online and face-to-face. I hope to facilitate learning opportunities to exchange understandings among one another in a linguistically and culturally diverse society.
