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.

Teaching Interests

Sociology of K-12 and higher education; race, gender, and masculinity; research methods; and sociological theory

Graduate Courses:

Sociology of Education

This course will introduce students to the sociology of education subfield to examine a range of topics related to schooling experiences, equity, and inequality across educational systems. In particular, we will examine issues of equity and inequality, with an emphasis on race, gender, immigration, culture, and the ways they intersect to impact educational experiences. In this course, students will be prepared to analyze educational processes and practices through a sociological lens, an approach that incorporates both individuals and institutions.
