Teaching



In Fall 2020, I started working as full-time, tenure-track faculty in Communication Studies at South Seattle College. I absolutely love teaching at an access-oriented and anti-racist institution. My students are amazing and I love empowering and supporting them with a variety of theoretical and practical tools in order to engage in self-expression and accomplish their goals. My praxis is informed by anti-racist and student-centered pedagogy. I feel incredibly lucky that this is my job.
