I am committed to developing effective, engaging, and unorthodox pedagogical approaches to teaching political science, challenging students to consider the critical questions of American democracy. I believe that every student has something to contribute to the class. In order to bring this out, I try to "teach every class like it is an 8am class" – doing my part to help students stay motivated and actively learning throughout the whole session. My teaching experience includes courses at Monmouth College, Northwood Technical College, the University of Notre Dame, and Indiana University-South Bend. Syllabi from the most recent version of these courses can be found below, and I am happy to share any additional teaching materials.
