High School Level
I taught high school English for two years with Teach For America at Gentry High School in Indianola, Mississippi. I also worked as an SAT, ACT, college essay, English and writing tutor for six years.
At Harvard University I served as a Teaching Fellow for three undergraduate sociology courses: Class and Culture, Social Interaction and the American Family.
I also read, graded and advised undergraduates working on their honors theses in both the Departments of Sociology and Social Studies at Harvard University.
I am particularly interested in helping students develop and improve their writing. I served as the Departmental Writing Fellow in Sociology and was a Bok Center Writing Fellow at Harvard.
While in graduate school I served as a Teaching Fellow for a graduate course, Qualitative Social Analysis. I received a Certificate for Distinction in Teaching for student evaluations of 4.55/5.0 for my work in this course.
As an Assistant Professor I teach in both the Educational Administration and Higher Education programs in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy. I have taught certification, masters and doctoral level courses.
