“The most important attitude that can be formed is that of desire to go on learning.”
John Dewey, Experience and Education
I am a passionate and committed teacher, thanks in large measure to my own incredible mentors. My first formal exposure to teaching was as a college tutor at a Harlem after-school program; since then I have taught adults English, middle-schoolers Spanish, and instructed everything from SATs to social theory. In graduate school, I was awarded Stanford University’s Centennial Award for Excellence in Teaching. Today, I teach a range of courses in American history and culture at The New School, and lead occasional intenSati movement classes. My highest goal as a teacher is that my students come to understand the world as more expansive than their own experiences, and that they acquire the skills, knowledge, and inspiration to transform it.
