Teaching Experience

I am a strong proponent of reflective teaching practices, direct mentoring, and engaging students in meaningful, hands-on activities and experiences to give students an opportunity not only to master the material, but to give them the tools they need to think critically in all aspects of their life. I am a vocal advocate for increasing inclusiveness in higher education, based on my own background as a first-generation, non-traditional student, who is also LGBT and a military veteran.
