“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” John Muir
I believe that learning is a lifelong endeavor and that the desire to learn is ultimately fueled by a desire to understand the things we experience in our lives. For these reasons, I think that it is extremely important to practice interdisciplinary thought and inspire curiosity to demonstrate that learning is not bounded by classroom walls. At the core, I believe these goals can be accomplished by appealing to students’ senses of autonomy, mastery, and purpose1.
I continue to explore and refine my teaching philosophy through past and present experience as a teaching assistant, guest lecturer, and student advisor. I look forward to the opportunity to gain a global perspective on higher education through Virginia Tech’s 2020 Global Perspectives Program.
