Before pursuing my PhD, I taught high school for 9 years, both in a public school and in an alternative high school. I take a lot of pride in teaching and mentoring of students. I believe in a student-centered approach to education, and meeting students where they are in their academic journey. During my time at Florida State, I taught Introduction to American Government, Introduction to Comparative Politics, European Union Politics, Politics of Western Europe, and Women and Politics. Below are sample syllabi from courses where I have been instructor of record.
