Teaching Philosophy

We must empower our students to take positive action for the benefit of their local and global communities.  When we learn to think critically, pose meaningful questions, and view the world from various angles-of-vision, we cannot help but become more tolerant people.  Critical theory teaches us vital lessons about the connection between language and power, and how individuals can contribute effectively as part of a participatory democracy.
