teaching philosophy and classes I taught.

My teaching philosophy is grounded in scientific method and centering marginalized voices. The ideal class would have a syllabus that consists of readings beyond texts of white dead men. It would include hands-on approaches to sociology as science (how do we know what we know?) including research ethnics and research politics (whose research matters and how do we challenge that?).

I want my students to be able to distinguish facts from opinions, and understand relationship between data and discourse.

I was responsible for discussion sections (~100 students per semester) in the following courses:

Introduction to Sociology;
Introduction to Criminology;
Gender and Society.

I was a teaching assistant in the following courses (~40 students per semester):

Research Methods;
Social Psychology of Small Groups.
