I am first and foremost a teacher. Even though my job title indicates that I am an administrator, my primary vocation is learning with others. I started my formal career in education teaching choral music and mathematics to middle school learners and eventually became a teacher educator. I’ve worked with students of all ages and inclinations. I’ve studied the problems of teaching, questioned the role of the teacher, and tried to make sense of the endeavor of education in a world that is reliably difficult to make sense of. I am fortunate to have learned from great teachers and benefited from knowledgeable mentors, but have been most inspired by my students. I never know where their questions will lead either of us – it is that limitless supply of curiosity and exploration that keeps me coming back for more.
