"I believe in the power of learning through fearless commitment to listening with the whole self. It's a momentous act of courage to remain curious and empathetic in a world hardwired against doing so; and our students face that challenge everyday. When we listen to our students, we help them listen to themselves, and we safely remove "I can't" from their vocabulary. I believe my job as a teaching artist is to create the conditions where students may best learn how they uniquely learn, generate clear boundaries, and encourage them to make as many smart mistakes as possible."
