Why I Teach At Siena: because they give me the tools and materials to construct engaging, thought-provoking lessons for our students. My colleagues all care so much about their work and the students. I get to pursue not only my passion for teaching but also my love of coaching and sports. And, mostly I teach at Siena because we have the most creative, empathetic, and smart students—they make me happy to go to work each day!
