TEACHING

In the classroom, I work to create an inclusive community of inquiry, in which we work together to develop and investigate important questions about the material.  I have particular expertise and interest in teaching quantitative methods courses -- including courses for non-specialists --  and courses with a substantial writing component.  I have taught on American politics, criminal justice, writing, quantitative analaysis, pedagogy, and other topics in a wide variety of settings: the University of Denver, the University of California at Berkeley, Mills College, San Quentin State Prison, and the Utah desert.
