PhD Candidate, Political Science

Teaching Philosophy

I see my role as a creator of opportunities for student learning and involvement. Through emphasis on scaffolding and discussion, I aim to show students that learning occurs in small increments. My main goal is to create safe and engaging environments for learning, which allow students to build on their existing knowledge and experiences, and enhance their critical thinking and discussion skills.
