Teaching is vital to my scholarship (and vice versa).  As a graduate student, I've been committed to honing my craft as an instructor. 

I've earned a Teaching Certificate from Harvard's Bok Center for Teaching and Learning; served as the lead instructor for my department's graduate teaching practicum; and have been awarded Bok Center Certificates of Distinction in Teaching for every term in which I was eligible. 

Most important to me, however, are the kind words I've heard from students about the ways in which I expanded and challenged their knowledge about the social world.
