She connects the curriculum to relevant issues in students' lives and feels a personal sense of responsibility to advocate for social change. Aimee believes in the ability to see the classroom and learn through students' eyes and willingness to see strength in differences avoiding judgment based on privilege. As an educator, Aimee seeks to understand what students want and need from the classroom and do more to improve available opportunities. She also loves learning from students and their families/communities and supports diverse opinions and ideas. Further, Aimee believes in confronting injustices. Aimee is aware of and accepts the wide range of experiences different from her own. She can critically examine held beliefs and assumptions and the willingness to adjust and form new, more accurate understandings. In summary, Aimee is passionate about teaching and will always welcome all students who take her courses. 

Currently, Aimee is studying Ph.D. in Education (Teaching and Curriculum), focusing on deaf multicultural and multilingual students in higher education. She is halfway through her program and expects to begin her dissertation in Spring 2023.
