I teach to equip students with sharp analytic and collaborative skills so that they can articulate informed perspectives and act against inequality.
I have extensive teaching experience. I have served for two semesters as Instructor of Record and for five as a Graduate Student Instructor, teaching discussion sections associated with larger lecture courses in the UC Berkeley sociology department. Of the 223 undergraduates who have evaluated my teaching, 208 reported that I was very or extremely effective overall (93%). I have also supported the pedagogical development of graduate students across the UC Berkeley campus in my role as Teaching Consultant at the UC Berkeley Graduate Student Instructor Teaching & Resource Center. In addition to leading workshops for thousands of graduate students on creating inclusive classrooms, working with student writing and how students learn, I designed and co-led a fellowship program to prepare 479 graduate students for remote instruction in 2020-2021.
I have received four awards for excellence in teaching: the UC Berkeley Extraordinary Teaching in Extraordinary Times Award, the K. Patricia Cross Future Leaders Award, the UC Berkeley Sociology Department Blumer Fellowship, and the UC Berkeley Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Award.
