Faculty & Staff
- Adjunct Instructor
- Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion
- “A hallmark of my teaching is communicating effectively the philosophical and religious concepts relevant to today’s world in ways that students find fun and easy to understand. Accordingly, I use a wide variety of learning techniques, creatively mixing lectures, discussions, games, group work, videos, and music to reinforce course material. Blending learning techniques ensures that whatever each student’s particular learning style is, that style is tapped, such that a diverse community of students learn the same material in different ways.”
- Professor of Philosophy and Religion
- "Late night gatherings at nearby Lakeside Park, lying on blankets to gaze at the heavens; Dramatic presentations in full costume by famous historical individuals; Colorful celebrations of worship rituals of the world’s great faith traditions; Living room discussions at our home nearby campus for all Friday classes; Relaxation and guided imagery where students invite their friends. These and other formats are implemented in my classes as we quest for philosophical/religious truth.
