Why I love teaching at Taylor:
I love teaching at Taylor because…of the high value Taylor places on teaching and learning; the inquisitiveness of our students; and the humbling joy it is with students to gather around the greatness of a subject.
I enjoy reflecting on life’s big ideas—why are we here, what does it mean to be human, and so forth. Baseball is an obsession, the Chicago Cubs are my passion…which drives me back to life’s big questions—will the Cubs ever win the World Series??? I also enjoy working with my hands, especially pruning trees, cultivating plants, and making furniture. I love spending time with my family.
