I am currently teaching Sociology 274: Social and Economic Justice. I have also taught Sociology 411: Social Movements and Sociology 131: Sociology Through Film. My course materials and reviews can be found below.

My Teaching Statement and Philosophy covers my approach to teaching and my objectives for teaching undergraduates. I am trained in inclusive teaching practices through the Carolina Center for Faculty Excellence. I also served as a fellow in the Future Faculty Fellowship Program, a program focused on evidence-based teaching techniques. I received the Wilson Award for Excellence in Teaching, a competitive prize given by the faculty in the sociology department.
