Community and student empowerment are central to my teaching philosophy. I believe that students learn by doing and interacting. My role in the classroom is to create an environment where students are inspired, productive, creative, and included.
Digital photography involves a marriage of technical skill and artistic expression. Without technical skill, a student can't accurately record the beauty that surrounds them. Without artistic expression, photographs are lifeless and uninspiring. I strive to make excellent photographers of all students by nurturing both of these important areas.
Photography is an accessible entry-point to the world of artistic expression, but it is not necessarily easy. It takes experience and hard work to make truly great photographs on a consistent basis. I have high expectations of my students and I believe in celebrating the fruits of their hard work in the school and in the greater community.
