For me, teaching is working with a student to build a bridge that we will both cross together, even as we’re building it. I find the process rewarding and exhilarating. My philosophy of teaching has three aspects—meeting the student where they are, asking and sparking questions, and inspiring confidence—which involves patience, active learning, questioning, respect and critical writing. I hope to contribute to my students' whole-person education (in the spirit of cura personalis—what can I say, I'm Jesuit-educated).

Beyond information science, my teaching experience includes English-as-a-second-language instruction in classrooms and one-on-one.
