Summary

I am committed to continue to improve my teaching and mentoring of all students. I first began to develop my strengths in both teaching and inclusion while at KU working at KU Info and being a peer-support for students learning English as a second language. My experiences at KU taught me the value of diversity and inclusion which I have carried with me throughout my teaching career.

I am committed to working with all students marginalized for multiple reasons such as LGBTQ, disabilities, and people of color, and I have a strong commitment to helping them.

I am committed to incorporate climate action and environmental sustainability with social equity.

I am committed to enhance students’ experiences by identifying students who may need additional school services receive appropriate help.
