I regularly teach courses, as well as advise, supervise, and collaborate with students, across Legal and Constitutional Studies; Political Theory; American Political Development; and Race, Ethnicity, and Politics. I have been an instructor of record at the College of William & Mary, Brown University, and University of Florida, and a Teaching Assistant at Brown University and Harvard University.
I generally pursue three aims in my pedagogical approach:
- First, I strive to make my teaching accessible, inclusive, and participatory.
- Second, and relatedly, I seek to encourage students to draw connections between the past and present, to think within and across a range of material and disciplinary boundaries, and to be able to critically contextualize their own place in the world.
- Third, I am especially committed to encouraging students to think independently, read closely, write well, and actively participate in class discussions.
