This statement of my teaching philosophy gives a summary of how I build classroom experiences to foster critical thinking, and my personal growth from starting teaching to where I am now. To view my teaching statement, click here.
A short synopsis of my teaching values: I value my students' progress, learning, and engagement with tough issues and tough concepts. I build my classes around socially and politically relevant issues in digital media, and I value the whole-picture engagement that my students experience from readings, discussion, activities, assignments, and real-world engagement.
I also value their well-being, both physically and mentally. My syllabi that are media-heavy include content warnings (CWs) for potentially triggering material. Students are always welcome to discuss with me alternatives to the media that we are discussing as a way of participating without sacrificing their mental well-being.
