My job as a teacher is to facilitate students’ “sociological imaginations,” or their ability to situate their lived experiences within broader social forces. I facilitate inclusive classroom environments that provide students the space to engage with challenging empirical and theoretical sociological texts and apply them to their own experiences outside of the classroom. I have developed my craft through summer intensive courses and year-long pedagogy fellowships at the Columbia University Center for Teaching and Learning. I work to scaffold lesson and course plans to help students develop a strong grasp of course materials before organizing activities and research projects that give them the opportunity to engage with and build upon past thinkers.
