By pairing explorations of Art and Literature, my students are able to create broader brushstrokes of Interpretation in my English class. Though, the true masterpiece appears when my students unfold their realities into stories in order to create a better version of themselves. This is when teaching is the most meaningful to me.
BA Fresno State University 2007
I believe in fostering an environment where students participate in project-based learning, and learn through cooperation and collaboration.
