Student Work
For me teaching is a symbiotic relationship -- my personal work is directly influenced by my explorations in the classroom, and the day I quit learning is the day I no longer wish to teach. I have been fortunate to have had many outstanding students since I started teaching; every semester I encounter individuals with greater talents than I possess, and their energy, creativity, and enthusiasm is contagious.
Here are a few of my students and their work, I am very proud of them.
