As a teacher my aim is to help students develop skills and outlook to learn about nature and engage respectfully with the multiple ways of knowing it. I center my pedagogy on interdisciplinary and applied teaching that integrates diverse histories, geographies, and languages to cultivate knowledge that connects, celebrates diversity, and fosters interdisciplinary research and community partnerships. My pedagogical strategy includes:
1. To help students develop skills and acquire knowledge that builds connections with environment and society.
2.To provide learning spaces that is inclusive, celebrated diversity, and multiple ways of knowing.
3. To train students to conduct ethical interdisciplinary research through community collaborations, and knowledge co-productions.
