I’ve been uniquely fortunate to grow up with professors for parents, surrounded by their passionate colleagues and friends, inspiring teachers of my own, and life-long learners in general.

I feel strongly about contextualizing my curriculum. I show my students how subjects affect the Austin area and the world at large. I believe that teaching an understanding and appreciation for the world both in and beyond one’s own backyard will not only foster greater appreciation for places, peoples, and cultures, but also encourage greater investment in community and conservation.

Odyssey is the perfect environment for encouraging curiosity and a zeal for learning with its small classes, its flexibility in what and how we teach, and its emphasis on community involvement.
