Over the course of my career I have taught for unviversities, colleges and museum programs. While I currently teach exclusively at universities, in the long view my students have ranged widely in age, and also nationality, race, gender and class. The institutions have ranged from underserved public schools to exclusive private schools. Teaching continues to be a rich experience, one that integrates technology with philosophy, craft with expression, personal observation with critical theory. It's dynamic, challenging and satisfying.
