Personal Statement

Personal Statement

Urging all of us to open our minds and hearts so that we can know beyond the boundaries of what is acceptable, so that we can think and rethink, so that we can create new visions. I celebrate teaching that enables transgressions-a movement against and beyond boundaries. It is a movement which makes education the practice of freedom.” Bell Hooks, (1994)

These words reflect a commitment to help students move beyond a conventional acceptance to create a vision that is rooted in knowledge and experience, but can break ground into new territory. These words reflect my teaching philosophy.

My work focuses on preparing psychologists to meet the mental health needs of children within a varity of settings. The goal for all of my students is that they are able to analyze information in a manner that yields innovative thinking and practices that will address the challenges to the mental health of children within schools and society.
