My purpose as a teacher is to provide students structured opportunities to meaningfully engage in critical questions. These questions are related to educational leadership, equity, policy and improvement.
Whether teaching about the history of educational reform, educational policy or organizational change, my goal is to help students draw connections to the world around them and wrestle with complexity. My approach is to provide viewpoints rather than answers and allow students to investigate their opinions, and make space for change over time.
