My academic background is in music and education (ask me about becoming a licensed high school biology teacher!); as an undergraduate, I studied abroad in England and Germany and feel that overseas study is immensely rewarding; and I am deeply committed to the enterprise of liberal arts education because I think it’s vital to the health of our democracy. I look forward to seeing you in Jordan Hall A115.
