I’m passionate about education and excited about the doorways it opens for all of us. I do not take your desire to learn lightly, and I’m committed to providing a dynamic learning environment for all students. Ultimately, your perspective should be significantly changed by the end of the term; at least that is my goal. To me, nothing is off the table. Education provides an opportunity to seek the truth like very few other experiences can. I intend to take full advantage of that. With that, I believe our exploration of social problems will uncover many aspects once hidden, within ourselves and within our society. This journey will challenge our assumptions and paradigms. Moreover, it will allow us to face many topics that we may otherwise shy away from in casual conversation. Most important, it will sharpen our critical thinking and hone our ability to assess the complexities of our social lives. Things may get heated, disagreements may arise, but I’m confident that our common pursuit of learning will emerge stronger on the other side.
