I am a dedicated and versatile teacher. I developed and taught the following courses while in graduate school. I am happy to provide syllabi on request.
- Social Problems
- Sociology of the Family
- Gender in Everyday Life
- Conformity and Deviance
My proudest teaching accomplishment to date was winning the university-wide Distinguished Teaching Award at UMass Amherst in 2018.
A note on my teaching philosophy:
I believe students learn the most when they can see why it matters. I am thrilled if they walk away from my courses able to critically examine things others take for granted, gather credible information on a given topic, and present that information in a way that is accessible and persuasive.
