I consider myself a lifetime learner, perennially curious about new and old ideas, and about how others see the world. I believe passionately that Economics, as a sometimes challenging subject, is often misrepresented as merely required to understand business or finance. I believe that understanding economics is critical to understanding the worlds - big and small - in which we live. I seek to help students to: Understand that economics is already a part of their lives, is everywhere, and is relevant to their lives and the world; Understand that economics is most relevant to an educated citizen as a way of thinking, a logical way to see the world and to think critically about what is there; Engage actively in their own learning, and recognize that lessons of the classroom reach beyond the classroom walls.
