My approach to teaching is grounded in constructivism and emphasizes student-centered and experience-based learning.

During the past decade, I have greatly enjoyed teaching and mentoring undergraduate and graduate students from diverse cultural backgrounds and with an array of interests and experiences. I have taught courses at the University of Pennsylvania, Tufts University, Boston College, the University of New Haven, Bay Path University, and Michigan State University in the following areas: criminology; criminal justice; advanced developmental research methods; positive youth development; adolescent development; social and behavioral aspects of public health; and program evaluation.

I am a former Scholar in the Society for Research in Child Development Teaching Mentorship Program and Subject Matter Expert in online course development for developmental psychology at Bay Path University. In addition, I earned my certification in Foundations of Online Teaching and Learning through the University of New Haven.
