I am a devoted teacher and student mentor. I take great care in cultivating classroom learning that is active, engaged, inclusive, and exciting. I follow evidence-based teaching pedagogies and am an enthusiastic supporter of classroom games and simulations to teach memorable concepts. Below are examples of courses I have taught at Fairfield University, Quinnipiac University, and Yale University.
