Teaching Experience

I have taught 22 courses as the instructor of record, in addition to being a teaching assistant for nine courses and a writing tutor for over two years. Throughout, I have received consistently high student course reviews, averaging 5.7 out of 6 in instructor overall and 5.9 out of 6 in instructor respect for students.

My teaching experiences in anthropology have included a variety of institutional models with diverse student body demographics, including the R1 university, branch campus, liberal arts college, community college, and online teaching. With each year I have expanded my pedagogical skillset, especially in regard to working with students from diverse backgrounds, and have completed two certificates in college teaching and a faculty learning program on engaging Indigenous students and topics.
