Teaching Philosophy

I aim to create a space that is innovative, nurturing, inclusive, and dynamic for my students. My main goals are to open individuals to the multiplicities possible in literatures and the interdisciplinary nature of the humanities. My role as a teacher is to facilitate learning and to critically engage students with the multitude of information that is available to them in this digital age.
