Teaching at UMR

As an instructor and inclusion-advocate at UMR, I work hard to create opportunities for active learning, ensure my classroom and office are safe spaces for mistakes, and remain transparent about grades and assignments. I reflect on my work often and reevaluate my teaching practices when needed because I strive to give students the best education possible. I hope that the work I do in the classroom will show students that knowledge is something worth struggling for.
