Teaching Philosophy

There are often invisible economic hurdles that prevent students from learning effectively. I am committed to using open-access resources wherever possible, free and open-source software, and web-based content where appropriate. I always leave room for flexibility so that my classes can develop organically as the students’ particular needs become evident.
