Learning is a gift.

"I find joy in writing curriculum, collaborating with colleagues, seeing strangers become familiar and most importantly, seeing every students’ face as they experience a personal “AHA” moment. I ask my students to think critically and expand their awareness beyond what makes them comfortable. I foster curiosity, encouraging learning to happen outside of the classroom walls. We work together to create a space where questions are encouraged, the ensemble can empathize with others and where students are not afraid to be themselves."
