Teaching Philosophy

I see my role in the classroom as an inseparable extension of my commitments to expansive notions of abolition. My approach to education as a liberatory practice combines content-area knowledge with rigorous engagements with theory, building on students’ personal experiences, and strengthening students’ abilities to effectively communicate their ideas across fields of knowledge and praxis. I see these as the pillars supporting students in understanding, imagining, and making the world they want to see.
