I trained as a teaching assistant and an independent course instructor during my tenure as a PhD student at Syracuse University, through a teaching mentorship program and the Future Professional Program (FPP) offered by the Graduate School. I taught multiple survey courses as part of the university's compulsory Humanities Core curriculum with a Writing Intensive (WI) focus. I taught First Gen students, pre-med, pre-law undergrads, Engineering majors, Psychology majors, Media & Communications students, Lit majors amongst others, in my classrooms, where I tried to create an environment that would be inviting, accommodating, and conducive to discussions of a dynamic range of literary texts, theoretical frameworks, and contemporary issues.
