As a first year graduate student giving my very first lecture on racism and sexism in a Social Psychology course, I knew teaching was one of my passions. I love the challenge of getting students interested in new topics, and I am thrilled to witness the energy they have when discovering something new. My greatest pleasures in teaching are moments when students engage in further discussion after class or a student drops by my office to inquire about a topic. My main goal as a teacher is to demonstrate the value of social science theory and application in students’ lives, emphasizing that learning should be an active, hands-on experience that continues long after the course ends. By combining a comfortable, personalized, yet energetic environment with a challenging curriculum, I hope to foster students’ genuine interest in course content, lifelong critical analysis skills, and appreciation of diversity of ideas and people.
