Each student matters as a unique individual. Each student’s unique experiences, beliefs and values brings an awareness and consciousness that contributes to our community of learners. Each student is encouraged to mindfully and respectfully share their point of view, personal experiences, questions and insight. In the process, everyone is a learner; everyone is a teacher.
Teaching and learning is a cooperative endeavor, with responsibilities for both the teacher and the learner. It is the student’s responsibility to critically engage and reflect on the learning experience and process, and to reveal that learning to the instructor. It is the instructor’s responsibility to provide experiential opportunities and resources for learning and to offer both challenge and support.
Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion:
I recognize that our individual differences deepen our understanding of each other and the world. I respect and value, people of all ethnicities, body types, genders, gender identities, religions, ages, sexual orientations, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, regions, and nationalities. A dedication to inclusiveness requires respecting what others say, their right to say it, and the thoughtful consideration of others' communication. This commitment shapes my core expectation for behavior inside and outside of the classroom/studio and workplace.
