Teaching Experience and Course Information

Teaching

My earliest teaching experience was not as a philosophy instructor, but as an academic enrichment specialist for a large, urban school district in Michigan. For nearly a decade, I taught students in grades 4-12 advanced concepts in mathematics, language arts, and logic. In this capacity, I also coached competitive academic teams, and my students earned over a dozen national championships in Academic Games League of America tournaments. This work afforded me my first opportunity to experiment with different pedagogical styles and teaching strategies. I still apply much of what I learned then to the philosophy courses that I teach now.

In the 2018-19 academic year, I will teach a graduate seminar on the philosophy of attachment and two upper-division undergraduate courses in ethics. As a lecturer at Princeton University, I regularly taught an upper-division undergraduate bioethics seminar entitled, “Ethics and Pathologies of Attachment.” Prior to that, as an adjunct instructor at UC Riverside and Western Michigan University, I taught courses in theoretical and applied ethics, philosophy of law, philosophy of emotion, and Asian philosophy.

I will soon update this page with links to course syllabi and other materials.
