Assumptions that Guide My Work

Every experience and environment is designed with a particular user in mind; 'neutral' and 'universal' designs do not exist.

Learners do not use their bodies in a vacuum and are constantly shaping and being shaped by the social world around them.

No learning is worth the cost of dehumanizing, (re)traumatizing, or shaming learners.
