I find my current style of teaching to have a lot of basis in the thought processes of culturally relevant teaching as well as feminist pedagogy. Creating moments of choice for students, no matter the demographic builds a world in which we can both claim and examine our roles as artists. No matter the class, what is of upmost importance is shifting the power dynamic to one where we can practice community building and and a decentralized and shared power.
