Teaching Philosophy

Teaching is a collaborative experience for me. My students and I work together to create images and forms that unlock truth and open up critical debate. I strive to develop exciting projects that allow them not only flexibility but also encourage self-expression and imagination. When these three elements are combined, I find their ability to cope with ambiguity, offer opinions, and defend judgements is greatly enhanced. My goal is to empower my students with life-long learning skills that allow them to adapt in visually dynamic culture, and I feel privileged to be a witness to this transformative process.
