Professor of Speech and Writing
Following the examples of some of the greatest educators in Western history such as
Socrates, Aristotle and Cicero, discussion is the cornerstone of all my classes and
is what makes them interesting, I hope. I love watching students who get excited about
a topic, or who admit to having their long-held beliefs challenged. Also enjoyable
are students who reach a personal goal even in a course they'd love to skip. Best
of all, though, and selfishly, I most enjoy it when the students teach me something.
