Why I Teach in Honors:

Honors for me is a way to get to know and help nurture young minds through the interface of literature that has something to say. Semester upon semester, this “shared adventure” is constantly new because every preceptorial has its own personality — a product of the diverse voices that comprise it. Honors is what I thought teaching would be like when I started out on my career many years ago, and it has not yet let me down.
