Teaching is a central element of my career in philosophy. I have devoted much time and effort to perfecting my craft and making myself a better educator, especially when it comes to those who are new to the discipline and those who have the hardest time understanding and adapting to the methods and ideas philosophers employ.
My teaching experience at the university level includes courses at University of Southern California, Cal. State–Long Beach, Lone Star College, Houston Community College, University of Houston, and most recently Washington University in St. Louis. I have taught on history of philosophy, logic, ethics, social/political philosophy, mind, and language. I also have extensive experience with 20th Century Analytic philosophy and existentialism. Here's some of the classes I've taught:
I have gained experience not only by teaching at colleges, but also over the course of the summers of 2011-2016, during which I taught K-12 students for a summer educational program (National Society for the Gifted and Talented). These courses covered a wide range of subject matters, including philosophy, economics, communication studies, psychology, physics, and cosmology.
As I hope is apparent, I value an interdisciplinary approach to teaching, looking at the same topic or question from the standpoint of different disciplines and exploring how these standpoints can be brought together. I often incorporated cross-disciplinary work into my philosophy courses, and also give non-philosophy courses a philosophical spin. I have been continuing to pursue this interdisciplinary approach in my postdoc at WashU.
