Teaching is something that excites me! I enjoy working with students. I do my best to make myself as available as possible for research, mentoring, discussions about career path/graduate school, extracurricular advising, and personal/community-building conversations. I find that in-class discussions often lead to promising research questions both for me and my students. I enjoy teaching introductory and advanced courses across American politics topics, with a strong focus on law & courts.

During the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 academic years, I completed the BGSU Teaching and Learning Certificate Program as part of the Center for Faculty Excellence. Across a series of professional development workshops, ranging in topic from inclusive pedagogy to active learning strategies, the program provided me and other faculty member with many “opportunities […] to explore current, innovative, and effective teaching strategies that support student success.’’
