I enjoy watching students learn and understand a concept, and congratulate myself if I am able to propel that process. I spent a considerable amount of time during the early years of my Ph.D. being a teaching assistant. I also completed the Future Faculty Program offered through Carnegie Mellon’s Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation in 2016.

The Future Faculty Program is designed to help graduate students who volunteer to develop their teaching skills and document their teaching-related professional development activities in preparation for a faculty career. The program consists of seminars, teaching feedback consultations, a course and syllabus design project, and a revised statement of teaching philosophy project.
