Background

My work remains deeply rooted in pedagogical approaches formed in a broad spectrum of educational environments. Improbably, my interest in re-reading Christian monastic sources (and more particularly, the Apophthegmata Patrum) began while teaching secondary mathematics in an urban classroom. Subsequent investment has been informed by derivative exploration of the formative tools that bind religion and education. Whether 'excavating the excavations' of Coptic school evidence, or exploring religious texts in conversation with ancient pedagogical models, primary questions link my interest in late-antique and contemporary learning. From early in my tenure as a faculty member at the University of Redlands, I have additionally integrated spatial approaches into both research and teaching. Through iteratively turning  emergent GIS tools to non-traditional ends, this award-winning work has particularly focused on finding new ways to visualize religious, monastic, and pedagogical exchange, within and across cultural and historical boundaries.
