Personal Statement

Personal Statement

My current teaching philosophy has evolved more and more into an intensely dialogic and inter-subjective approach to creating a classroom learning environment. My group systems training has led to to the incorporation of some group reverie exercises, even with large classes. Large and small group experiences of a relatively structured nature are woven into all of my classes.I recently have been using yoga exercises as an additional group component in my teaching.
