During my career, I have worked with students at every level from Kindergarten to college. My philosophy centers on empowering students to take ownership of the course, embracing evidence-based practices, establishing an inclusive and accessible environment, and fostering critical and creative thinking.
In addition to teaching dramatic literature, public speaking, and introductory courses for majors and non-majors, I have helped redesign a large-scale lecture course, facilitated course transitions into online spaces, and supervised fellow graduate students in a large lecture setting.
As a teaching artist, I draw on my professional experience and my year of teaching middle- and high-school theatre classes to educate students in the fundamentals of storytelling. I frequently work with Young Playwrights’ Theater in Washington, DC.
