Why I Love Teaching At Taylor:
At Taylor I can introduce students to text, ideas, and issues about which I care and invite them to discuss these. Frequently, this has involved being in London or Ireland or Singapore or Kenya where different settings and cultures challenge us. As a Christian, I care about expressions and behaviors involving justice and truth.
Advice to Incoming Freshmen:
Come with an open mind to learn more about the nuances of God’s truth and the beauty of His creation. Remember that since you are made in His image, you are also called to create as well as to tend nature and social needs. Read widely, think deeply, and learn to express yourself effectively.
Travel, gardening, biking
Little Known Fact About Me:
I taught a novels course for the inmates of a prison, going through double-security doors upon entering and exiting.
