Teaching

My teaching is informed by my time spent as a high school educator, university instructor, teacher coach, and classroom evaluator, which has offered multiple vantage points to observe and facilitate excellent pedagogy. Good teaching goes beyond classroom walls. I am committed to university education and mentorship that builds from students' experiences, improves written skills, entails empirical research, and expands the application of sociological knowledge in everyday life.
