Currently teaches:

Dr. Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot (Harvard Graduate School of Education) put it best: “I believe in the 'playfulness' of learning—turning ideas on their sides, considering them, laughing about them. Learning is at its best when it's serious and playful at the same time. There is an art to the interplay of discipline and humor."

Some of my favorite moments in class are those where the students lead the discussion and the teacher is an observer.
