Teaching History

From 2013-2016, I led first-year undergraduate seminars at California State University, Los Angeles (CSULA). Most recently, I have served as a teaching assistant for undergraduate courses at UCSC and teach a Sociology of Education graduate seminar at CSULA. During the 2019-2020 academic year, I will be a teaching associate in the sociology department at UCLA.

Course Description: Sociology of Education Graduate Seminar

This course will introduce students to the discipline of sociology and significant concepts from the sociology of education sub field to examine the schooling experiences, outcomes, and lives of diverse youth populations. This course focuses on issues of equity and inequality, with an emphasis on race, gender, immigration, culture, and the ways they impact educational experience across the P-20 educational system. Students will be prepared to analyze educational processes and practices through a sociological lens, an approach that incorporates both individuals and institutions.
