Teaching Philosophy

My teaching philosophy emerges from over 20 years of diverse teaching experiences as a university, public school and summer collegiate teacher with both middle and high school students and community organizing. I believe in teaching that raises social, cultural and political consciousness and that deals directly with bridging theory with practice through community engagement.  The foundation of my teaching philosophy rests on providing students a lens from which to comprehend and dismantle hegemonic structures in society, our schools, and curriculum.Core to my teaching activities is attending to different learning methods, interactive styles, and modes of communication by which students express their knowledge.
