My experiences in teaching span from the early years, elementary, middle, and high schools, to college and university. This includes public and private settings plus a stint as a de-schooling parent. My teaching and research interests include reflective practice, applied philosophy, the notion of emancipatory relationships, and the radical potential of care. I have been a faculty member at Goddard College since 1990. At Seneca College, I teach courses in curriculum theory, interpersonal communication, philosophy of education, and anti-bias education. My personal interests lie in health and fitness. I am a certified Spinning instructor and personal trainer. I am always interested in pushing the envelope with my fitness and my learning and have recently addressed both by learning various kinds of dance. I am a volunteer coach and I am a board member at a progressive school in Toronto. I am the mother of two daughters and realize that parenting is, for me, a place where one can accomplish far-reaching, radical feats.
