Teaching Philosophy & Approach:
I believe every student has a unique talent, and our job as educators is to help uncover and nurture these talents. From supporting my students in California classrooms to teaching immersive math and science project-based learning courses in the jungles of Bali at the Green School, I have always been passionate about experiential learning. A feel that a teacher's strengths lie in their ability to connect and understand our student learner's passions, so that we can build the strongest possible relationships with them. With a strong relationship and understanding, come the greatest joys and growth in learning!
