Teaching

I have successfully taught undergraduate students at both a selective private institution and a metropolitan comprehensive campus ranked 5th in the United States for diversity by US News and World Report. I developed, taught, and frequently updated and improved courses including:

A senior-level undergraduate course using interdisciplinary approaches to understand race and racism in American society

A senior-level service learning course integrating critical analysis of education reform programs and service to a local elementary school

An introductory-level interdisciplinary course on the development and prospects of the American middle class, focusing on public policies and intersections with race and gender

A senior-level American Studies seminar on Modern Atlanta

An upper-division course on metropolitan environmental justice addressing the relationship between urbanization and environment, the concepts of risk and precaution, environmental racism, and restoration
