My teaching philosophy focuses on three themes: (1) I structure my pedagogy in a way that allows students to grasp the course’s real-world relevance in addition to its fundamental concepts; (2) I promote a diverse and inclusive learning environment and strive to make the course equitable and accessible for all students; and (3) I provide continued mentorship to my students. Accordingly, I aim to create an intellectually stimulating learning environment to captivate students while in the classroom and to provide students with the skills necessary to achieve productive lives. I have incorporated this pedological approach as a primary instructor, as a teaching assistant, and as a mentor for undergraduate and graduate students.
