My primary teaching goals are to create a space for students to explore contemporary issues of culture, policy, and social justice through wide-ranging lenses, as well as to broaden perspectives in academic institutions by engaging with diverse communities. To this end, I have developed a pedagogy which advances higher-order thinking, peer learning, and practical application of course concepts


In addition to teaching courses such as Introduction to Sociology, Criminology, Research Methods, Sociology of the Family, and Social Justice in the Social Sciences, I have been an instructor for the McNair Scholars Program at Temple University, and Project L/Earn and the Paul Robeson Leadership Institute at Rutgers University. These three programs provide underrepresented and first-generation undergraduates with intensive research experiences. In addition, I have worked as a learning specialist with student-athletes for writing courses and study skills.
