Teaching Philosophy and Experience

Teaching students to critically analyze political phenomena--while also integrating learning, research, and service--is the cornerstone of my academic approach. I have pursued this philosophy by seizing opportunities to improve my instruction abilities as a teaching assistant, a writing instructor, a research advisor, and an instructor of record. These experiences have enabled me to promote learning by increasing student research competency; developing accessible and interactive curricula; and volunteering for advisor and mentorship roles. As a result, my student evaluation scores as a Teaching Assistant and Instructor of Record have consistently exceeded the field average. For more on my teaching philosophy, you may review my teaching statement, and review the full syllabi and course reviews linked below.
