I think that any learning atmosphere should foster curiosity, openness, support, and the courage to make mistakes. My goal is to help students experience a sense of mastery over what they already know and to provide guided challenges to deepen their knowledge and ability to think critically. I value the importance of building relationships with students to empower them to take healthy risks in their learning and to evaluate their mistakes without judgment. Additionally, I believe that students form a relationship with what they are learning. Without a sense of how the information is relevant to them and how they can apply it, learning is impeded.

The Adler community learns, works, and serves together because we share the value of social justice. Adler challenges students, staff, and faculty to step outside of “book learning” into the community and live out what we’ve been taught. I am here because it is clear that producing competent, responsible professionals is a priority.
