Teaching




My lessons focus on elucidating literary form, exploring social and political history, and cultivating creative and critical abilities to contemplate the ways cultural texts reflect broader social realities. My student-centered approach to teaching stresses that the specific cultural competencies we acquire through literary study prepare us for lives as engaged citizens who will be responsible for producing a more equitable and sustainable future.

I also volunteer weekly as a Writing and Critical Thinking tutor for the educational non-profit Minds Matter NYC.︎︎︎
