My Siena Experience

My Teaching Philosophy

 I am one who believes firmly in student centered education.  For me learning is really learning within a community of learners, including the professor. 

What I Love About Siena

 For me the abbreviated mission statement of the College captures what I love about Siena the most, i.e. Siena College is a community of learners that seeks truth and is guided by the Catholic intellectual tradition as well as the Franciscan intellectual tradition.  I also love the beauty of the Siena campus, the excellence and commitment of the faculty as well as the loyalty of the alumni.
