Teaching Objectives and Experience 


My primary goal is to help students de-individualize social phenomena while simultaneously showing that sociology illuminates personal, lived experiences in powerful ways. I aim to incubate new questions that leave students less certain about the assumptions they entered the classroom with, but also more curious and better skilled to find the answers they seek. I achieve these objectives by promoting analytical and reflective thinking.
