"Strong writing skills are critical not only to academic success but to creative self-expression. My approach to teaching writing and literature is to expose students to a variety of texts and invite them to examine their own interpretations and reactions. Thus, students sharpen their critical thinking skills and develop their individual voices."
"My goal has always been to demonstrate to students that a creative life can be a fulfilled life and that participating in an intellectual community brings personal power that will aid them as future leaders in whatever fields they choose."
