Teaching

In my teaching, I take a growth mindset approach. I emphasize my students’ ability to change and develop over time. Each student is capable to improving their performance, from the obviously talented student who can stretch themselves even further, to the underperforming student whose latent talents may need further cultivation and encouragement.

To this end, I draw upon the language of intellectual virtues following the example of Heather Battaly and Jason Baehr. In my classroom, we value intellectual patience and perseverance, creativity, intellectual humility, intellectual courage, and intellectual charity—all in addition to accuracy and precision.

My teaching has also been profoundly influenced by my experience in the Lilly Graduate Fellows Program. I am grateful to Jane Kelley Rodeheffer and Arlin Migliazzo for their mentorship in this program, and to the other members of my Lilly Fellows cohort for their friendship and support.
