Since 2010, I have been teaching at undergraduate institutions. At The Pennsylvania State University, I taught different versions of the Public Speaking courses that are required of all students. The courses I taught were traditional public speaking courses, public speaking courses for international students arriving early in the summer before their freshmen year, and group communication courses with a public speaking focus.
In 2015, I began teaching in Washington, D.C. at the George Washington University and the University of the District of Columbia. At both of these institutions, I taught writing courses for undergraduate students. These courses focused on a theme around identity. Specifically, I provide a framework relating to Latinx identities and stereotypes in the United States, and encourage my students to explore how these issues around identity relate to their own life experiences.
Through my doctoral programs, I have taught a variety courses and concepts in Communication Studies, including Voice & Gender, Communication Through Literature, Intercultural Communication, Human Communication, and Communication and Gender.
My hope is to continue to grow as an instructor so that I can be better equipped to support my future students in their own education and growth.
