Teaching Statement

Our students need as many hands-on experiences as possible. We do that throughout our curriculum and it's something that I try hard to do in all of my classes. Whether it's developing ads that use copy only in one of my advertising classes, or it's wrestling with the concept of utilitarianism in my media ethics class, I push students to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty with whatever it is we're covering in class. This really helps them to learn in a very dynamic way.
