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.
As a PhD student, I am continuing to teach and train in teaching new and different courses and concepts. 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.
