  • Food. Seriously! I enjoy eating it, talking about it, and teaching about it.  
  • Current events. It's fascinating to look at texts from the past and the present to help better understand the moments that we are in now. As we learn more about our world, we learn to see concepts through fresh eyes. We learn to make connections that might have been murky or unknown to us before. Through this knowledge, we can be better local and global citizens.
