Philosophy of Teaching:
It is the responsibility and privilege of the teacher to provide risk-free, supportive learning environments in which students have the opportunity to acquire and apply knowledge, think critically and creatively, and explore content as well as personal beliefs. At Baylor, faculty and students are offered the unique opportunity to interact, learn, and establish relationships of respect in a Christian environment as they work together to make meaningful contributions to our world.

Research Interests:
I am especially interested in research focusing on teacher education, mentoring of beginning teachers, and gifted and talented education.
