Working with students from different majors and intellectual backgrounds has been highly energizing for me. Not only did it allow me to share my enthusiasm for the study of language from a variety of perspectives; it also led me to think more clearly about my own research and ideas, contributing to sparking my interest in pursuing a career as a linguist.
For this reason, I am determined to find new opportunities to teach and mentor in a variety of capabilities. By the same token, I continually strive to refine my pedagogical and professional skills through the support and support from dedicated institutions and programs, such as the Center for Teaching at the University of Chicago. Below you can find more information about my teaching experience and philosophy.
