We can learn to see each other and see ourselves in each other and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unalike” Dr. Maya Angelou

I teach to see, honor, and connect myself to the humanity in myself and in among other. Yes, as instructors, we do plan, research, organize, and deliver presentations – and in doing so, we explore the potential of communication to shape our worlds through understanding and connecting to others. Through communication we participate in civic conversations and decision-making processes – it is about voicing, listening, and responding to information, experience, and emotions. Communicators take ethical stances in relation to themselves, others, communities, and social issues. My teaching is guided by a philosophy of studying and practicing communication as social responsibility embodying concern for others, attention to words and nonverbal expressions, and commitment to understanding the multiple sides of issues.

My teaching aims to bring together these threads as I balance individual and group needs. I try to help cultivate practical and constructive environments that provide space and time for using dialogue to patiently work through the messiness of creative experimentation.
