My goal as an educator is to introduce central philosophical concepts and invite critical thinking about them. I strive to create a stimulating classroom in which students are encouraged to present their positions about important issues. Whenever possible, I attempt to relate classroom discussion to current domestic and world events. I also enjoy presenting concepts within their relevant historical contexts. My assessment instruments include critical analyses and reflection essays that challenge students to explore and evaluate important ideas.
