Teaching Philosophy & Pedagogical Approaches

As a teacher, I try to bring an awareness of unique life experiences into all student encounters. I ask myself every day how I can offer tools to help students become accountable risk-takers, creative problem-solvers, and critically-minded collaborators. As much as possible, I teach to the individual by valuing lived experiences of identity that each student will bring into the embodied process of learning. As a theatre maker, I value experiential learning as well -- this is how we keep developing our craft!
