In order to become a teacher, it's not enough to develop new skills or acquire a new knowledge; you have to learn to be something new, as well. Teaching involves a radical repositioning, a new way of seeing yourself in relation to the world around you. It's an ongoing and never-ending process of growth and change, of questioning what you thought you knew about yourself, your students, and the content that you teach. Teaching is both technical and relational. It's contextualized problem-solving in partnership with the fellow inhabitants of your classroom environment. It is complex, dynamic, fluid, and incredibly exciting.
I'm thrilled to work with the students, supervisors, mentors, faculty, and staff in the CEC to create learning spaces that foster the kinds of reflection and equitable relationship that will allow the next generation of teachers (and their future students!) to thrive.
If I'm not teaching or researching, I'm probably building Legos, working on my motorcycle, or doing something on the farm with my wife. Come by my office for coffee/records/Legos/Star Wars geekery! I promise you won't be disappointed.
