About

Teaching courses such as ???Social and Philosophical Issues in Education,??? ???Adolescent Development,??? ???Secondary School Culture,??? and ???Issues and Research in Education,??? I try to challenge my students to think critically about foundational questions in education as well as issues that schools and teachers are facing. In the Fall of 2010, I introduced a new course to the university curriculum entitled ???The philosophy of Humor and Laughter.??? My background is in philosophy, psychology, and education, and my research often explores the intersections of these three disciplines. My areas of interest include teacher education, foundations of education and, more recently, exploring the connections between humor and philosophy of education. In 2005, I published Ten Common Myths in American Education (Holistic Education Press). Earlier I edited a book entitled Hannah Arendt and Education: Renewing our Common World, which won of the 2002 AESA Critics Choice Award. I have also published numerous articles in scholarly journals such as Educational Theory, Journal of Teacher Education, Educational Studies, Oxford Review of Education, and Encounter: Education for Meaning and Social Justice.
