When deciding curriculum, I focus on material relevant to our everyday lives and I work to expand traditional sociological canopies by including diverse perspectives. In the classroom, I use my creativity to design insightful discussion questions as well as engaging activities for students to apply course concepts. One of my teaching strengths is that I work to create an environment where students feel comfortable to discuss with myself and their peers. I do this by acknowledging every student and explain with empathy.
