Curriculum Vitae

Academic interests

My teaching is guided by social responsibility, compassion, real-world experiences, and love for the subject matter. Students engage in inquiry-based learning with interdisciplinary content to recognize the critical importance of gender and culture, diversity, and contemporary and global perspectives. Empathy, an equity lens, my lived experience as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, and my abiding love of the study of human development and early learning shape my teaching pedagogy. I am interested in progressive, anti-bias, play-based early childhood education settings, in addition to examining 'play' from a global perspective.
