Interest in Teaching in Core Text/Liberal Arts Program:
    My main motivation for teaching in a core text/liberal arts program can be summed in the phrase: the prioritization of the person. One of my greatest strengths as a teacher is my genuine concern for the well-being and formation of my students. This concern is founded on my conviction that the end of every person is to know. In my experience the process of liberal learning is complex, one that takes place outside the classroom even more than it takes place within it. True liberal learning requires a community that extends beyond the classroom. It is the result of reflection on experience, interpreting one’s interaction with the environment, and discovering the importance of human relationships. My aim as a teacher is to guide students from their very core, to enable them to discover what inspires them, what gives them hope, and what opens them to taking action. It is this training in their own humanity that capacitates students to engage the material and each other in a more profound, honest and respectful manner. Liberal learning requires this encounter with both the text and with others, and it must be internalized and lived so that the person feels empowered to impact their society and to shape culture.
