I have taught literature and composition courses on global Anglophone, British, Irish, and postcolonial literatures; crime literature; urban spaces; and literature and religion. I have also acted as the Dean’s Teaching Fellow through Emory University at Arrendale State Prison, an institution for women in Alto, Georgia, where I taught a writing lab in the fall of 2017 and a literature course in spring 2018, and I currently teach and tutor on a volunteer basis at Philips State Prison in Gwinnett County, Georgia.

I have received multiple awards for my teaching, including the Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts 2022 Distinguished Non-Tenure-Track Faculty Teaching Award at Georgia Tech; the Fall 2021 Student Recognition of Excellence in Teaching: Class of 1934 CIOS Honor Roll at Tech; the 2021 Conference on College Composition & Communication Writing Program Certificate of Excellence; and several “Thank a Teacher” awards from students at Georgia Tech. My goal when teaching, no matter what context, is to get students to think critically about their environment and to trouble preconceived notions surrounding literature, history, space, place, identity, and culture. My CV includes a summary of my teaching experience, and I am happy to share syllabi or assignments upon request.
