TEACHING

I have three primary goals as an educator – to make students excited about politics and to help them understand real-world developments, to develop students’ critical thinking skills, and to foster an inclusive and organized classroom environment to celebrate diversity and facilitate student learning.

My teaching has been well-received by students, as my evaluations from seven of my eight semesters as an educator at the University of Illinois earned me a spot on the “List of Teachers Rated as Excellent by Their Students,” denoting evaluations in the top thirty percent campus-wise; further, I have received evaluations placing me in the top ten percent three times.
