I love hearing and nurturing the different perspectives and ideas that are brought to the classroom everyday at NMH. I encourage my students to value their own opinions and those of their classmates, and by doing so they learn in a cooperative and stimulating manner. Teaching sophomores in World History particularly lends itself to exciting discoveries of connections and understandings that may have previously lay hidden to students. I value my role in facilitating that process, and I continuously find NMH students eager to learn more of their world and how they figure within it.

What excites me about this unique opportunity to teach at NMH is the chance to be a positive force in students' lives in my capacity as a teacher, advisor, coach, and mentor. As an NMH alum myself, I was in the same position as these students four years ago, so I understand what they are going through on daily basis.
