Personal Statement
What do you like best about teaching at ND: I feel honored to work among the ND staff and faculty, who are a warm and nurturing community for each other and for the education of the whole person in each of our students. It is a pleasure to work, as well, with students eager to learn, eager to engage, eager to challenge themselves to be their best thinker and writer.
