Professor Christen-Syed is very passionate about teaching and learning. Here is her philosophy of education:
- All students can be literate members of a diverse society with the ability to communicate effectively in everyday life.
- All students can develop the thinking, reading, composing, and speaking skills necessary to participate successfully in the public sphere as students, workers, citizens, and life-long learners.
- Participation in a learning community fosters social, civic, emotional, and intellectual growth.
- Diverse instructional materials, strategies, and environments enhance learning.
- Teachers are leaders and inventors; students are volunteers and workers.
- Teaching is an art, as well as a craft, and the teacher-student relationship is at its heart.
