Personal profile


With over 18 years in education and training, I am interested in the fundamentals that underpin our purposes and methods that supports their articulation. My project in education philosophy proposes a critical authenticity - a process of engaging with the self that permits creativity in construction and articulation. As a poet, I use poetic inquiry as a method and as a methodology in exploring self-constructs and self-concepts. Poetry provides the opportunities for articulation and allows for the environment to engage with one's definitions of themselves.
