Through my experiences as a teacher in a variety of classroom contexts, I have been able to teach students from diverse backgrounds and at different stages of their academic careers.  These experiences range from serving as a graduate assistant, to mentoring master’s and honors thesis students, to independently teaching my own courses.  As a teacher, I help students to develop a sociologically-informed view of the world, as well as the ability to understand and make use of theory and findings from research.  I also encourage my students to think critically, connect course materials to current events and their own lives, and appreciate diverse perspectives and backgrounds.  See my teaching experiences below:
