We love what General Assembly stands for. For us, it’s a place of tremendous energy and go-getter attitudes. Every member of the community wants to build and collaborate and learn, creating a truly exciting environment to teach.

We feel strongly about being leaders within the General Assembly community, at least when it comes to our discipline. We take pride and ownership over our curriculum and our school of thought. We love working with students to collaborate and mold them into communicative, skilled and confident marketers. One of the best parts about teaching is the ability to watch a class grow together and change each other. We’ve learned new ways to approach our discipline every time we teach. Especially in today’s fast-moving economy, it’s so critical that General Assembly makes it possible to learn new skills and improve expertise. We’re excited to be a part of that every day.

Our teaching experience has been rewarding well beyond the classroom; we’ve actually hired 4 former students. It’s proven to be a great alternative to a headhunter!
