Our perception of reality is constantly changing as we are continuously learning and growing from our experiences. In this way, my pedagogy is that of always striving for creativity, ingenuity, and innovation in academia. My classes act as an open forum for discussion where students can develop and express individual perspectives, voices and styles. My goal as an instructor is to help guide writers on their journey of crafting essays, short stories, and other types of manuscripts so that students are proud of their work.
