Teaching

For the past several years I have designed and taught my own seminars on writing and literature at introductory and advanced levels. My experience includes work as the teaching assistant and guest lecturer for large lecture courses. During my time at Cornell, I participated in programs for mentoring both undergraduates and graduate students with a focus on supporting underrepresented minorities. My students have won expository essay prizes from the Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines.

My professional development has included leading interdisciplinary pedagogical workshops, courses on the teaching of writing, and coordinating a teaching support group for women of color. I share and develop my pedagogy through THATcamp digital humanities conferences and involvement through HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory).
