My Advice to Walden Students 

Live every day as though it were their last. I don't mean run out today and travel the world or buy dream houses
or immediately gather their closest friends and relatives for reunions, necessarily. I mean try to find pleasure in everything they do and
everything they accomplish in the course of a day,
and make time to share the moments of joy and laughter with the people closest to them. 


My Role as a Teacher

Why I enjoy teaching at Walden:

I enjoy teaching because I enjoy watching other people succeed, and I understand by now that success starts with learning how to succeed. I also enjoy the process of discovery, especially with others. 

What students can expect from me as a teacher:

As an instructor, students can expect that I will be fair, treat them like colleagues, respect their lives, and share whatever expertise and advice I have to offer.
