Teaching

I’m passionate about teaching and understanding how people learn best. I’m always looking to learn new ways to support students, create inclusive learning environments, ensure my lessons are culturally responsive, and enable my students to connect what they’re learning in the classroom to their communities and current events. My goal when working with students is to challenge them to recognize a variety of perspectives different from their own, and to help them see the ways that they can not only study history, but can shape it, too.

As a graduate student at Yale, I had the pleasure of teaching African history courses, and previously as a Teaching Intern at the Northfield Mount Hermon Summer Session, I taught courses on academic writing, geography, and public speaking. I also completed a Certificate of College Teaching Preparation through the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning at Yale University.
