My teaching philosophy reflects a challenging but playful journey based on a foundation of joy, passion, intense inquiry and constant analysis of the research.

I believe that each teacher has the potential to empower, to change and to inspire. I want my students to take risks, question with energy and explore through research and learning. Teaching and learning are truly meaningful through community-based research and intentional service experiences. My approach is to afford students regional and international opportunities. I believe through communication I can guide my students through issues of early development, justice and equity. I have an important role in guiding our students to examine who they are and that they have the power to make a difference in the lives of children and families.
