My Cultural Compass

My passion is fueled by those moments I witness an individual experience a different culture and recognize not only the differences but the similarities between us all. Culture can vary from country, groups, areas, and ethnicities but when we take the time to learn more about another culture we also learn more about ourselves. The process of discovering and adjusting to other cultures sparked my interest in my dissertation subject of re-acculturation.

As an educator I seek to provide an educational experience that fosters global perspectives, critical thinking, cultural awareness, problem solving, and engaging curiosity. A successful learning experience consists of real-life scenarios that can provide self-directed learning to grow the skill levels of each individual. Every individual is entitled to a diverse learning experience that includes people from different nations and locations around the world, learning from many different life perspectives, and equal learning opportunities.
