I love learning, particulary about healthy social and emotional learning. Professor Martin Seligman's work on resilience training (innoculating kids against depression) really inspires me; Professor Carol Dweck's work on Growth Mindset vs Fixed Mindset is so powerful as well. I want to develop the ability to help foster emotional and academic growth in my students as effectively as I can.
