Most memorable teaching experience: In my fall 2014 diversity class, I assigned students a drama simulation. One team imagined that they were a group of teachers presenting to a school board about how their curriculum was relevant to bilingual students. This group took everything we read, discussed and argued about in class, and they tweaked it to fit their own beliefs as they presented to the imaginary school board. I was impressed!
