Some of the Values that Shape My Work
I am interested in many aspects of teacher education including curriculum development through social studies and the integration of the arts, along with focused attention to diversity and public schools. I am also interested in cooperative learning and group process.
A significant value in my teaching practice is the process of supporting the emotional maturation of my students. This is important in order to enhance self-understanding and deepen relationships with their own students and other people in their lives. It is especially meaningful for me to observe these students become increasingly able to support the positive relationships essential in a caring classroom community and help their own students become successful learners.
