"To teach in a manner that respects and cares for the souls of our students is essential if we are to provide the necessary conditions where learning can most deeply and intimately begin." - bell hooks

I use a variety of teaching skills such as engaged speaking, small/large group discussion, interactive visual slides/graphics, live ‘experiments’ or practices to put concepts to use in the here-and-now, Q&A, and other creative ways to keep folks curious and engaged in the material. I also love to provide as many resources as possible, which includes a link to my slide deck if applicable.

I have adapted classes//talks for both in-person and virtual delivery. I love what I teach. And I rarely teach the same thing exactly twice!
