I have been teaching at Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire, since Fall 2017. I’ve taught courses in German: Elementary German (IHGER 101 and 102), Intermediate German (IHGER 201) and Conversation and Composition (GER 315), as well as The Holocaust (HGS 252) and Integrated Thinking and Writing (ITW 101), and Children and the Holocaust (an honors seminar). Before coming to Keene State, I taught courses at The University of Massachusetts Amherst, Clark University, and Bard Microcollege Holyoke on English grammar (and its varieties), fairy tales, and various levels of German language courses.
As of Summer 2018, I’m one of the faculty ambassadors of the USNH Open Education Initiative. I’m learning about and practicing ways to use Open Educational Resources and Open Pedagogy in my classes. These are ways to make college more affordable and more accessible to students, and it’s backed by research that shows it helps students earn higher grades, remember information better, and stay in college and graduate. This resonates with my work in social justice through education and my passion for sharing access to truthful information.
