In my teaching practice, I focus on creating supportive learning environments, making courses accessible to all types of students, and designing meaningful assessments that contribute to long term understanding and applicability. Since joining the Philosophy department at URI in 2017, I’ve specialized in teaching lower-level, general education classes, and working with first-year, undeclared students. Teaching philosophy is my passion, as I believe that this work can positively influence society by equipping students with the vital tools of critical self-examination and the ability to constructively approach disagreements with others.

I am happy to bring this passion with me to my work as a Faculty Development Affiliate, where my goal is to help faculty across URI integrate ethics into their classes. My role with ATL has grown out of my work with the Ethics Throughout the Curriculum High Impact Teaching Seminar, which I co-designed and have co-facilitated since summer 2020. I have taught several sections of Philosophy 212: Ethics almost every semester, and I have given numerous invited and refereed presentations on my pedagogical work both regionally and nationally. Bringing this knowledge and experience to my work with ATL, I look forward to helping faculty design ethics-focused assessments, facilitate honest and difficult conversations in the classroom, and make curricular content decisions.
