Narrative. Confidence. Community. Immersion.
"While my teaching is not limited to the following four words, they highlight deeper methodology and pedagogy which give an overview of who I am as a teacher, within dynamic teaching contexts. It is the best of my personal commitment to student-centered teaching: know your students, including their functional uses of the language, their creativity, and their emotional response. Consequently, implement meaningful, grammatical, need-based instruction, through community-oriented teaching and purposeful, integrative tasks."
