At Duke, I taught a range of courses: a required introductory writing course, a non-major English seminar, and an advanced course in nineteenth-century British literature. These courses have given me the opportunity to teach a variety of genres: critical theory, short stories, non-fiction, comic books, film, television, novels, and even board games. I was awarded the Bass Instructional Fellowship for the Fall 2017 school year by the Duke Graduate School to teach my Nineteenth-Century British Novel Course in the Duke English Department. For my work in this course, I was nominated for the Duke English Department Stephen Horne award for excellence in teaching by a graduate instructor.
Through opportunities at Duke, I continued my pedagogical training outside the classroom. I have fulfilled the requirements to earn Duke’s Certificate in College Teaching when I graduate. In the 2017-2018 academic year, I was selected by the Duke Graduate School to be a Preparing Future Faculty Fellow. By participating in this program, I gained familiarity with a diverse range of academic institutions and learned methods to adapt my teaching to the needs of particular institutions.
