“Opinions. Everyone has them, but what makes ours better than those of others? It certainly is not determined by whose is yelled the loudest. As an educator and professor of College Composition, I teach students the importance of viewing all sides of issues, how and where to search those out themselves, to discern quality sources, and then to articulate their opinions with support and productive civility. As a professor of Young Adult Literature, I have a responsibility to expose students to a myriad of topics and situations through literature that they might not otherwise experience firsthand, teaching them empathy and understanding–two virtues we need in abundance.”
