Teaching sociology, for me, is a powerful avenue in which you have the opportunity to shape students’ perceptions about how the world really works. Teaching is a craft and a very important aspect of an academic position, as you have the potential to greatly impact one’s life by engaging with students one-on-one and exposing them to a deeper understanding of society.
I approach the classroom using student-centered methods, professionalization, and real world application and skills to prepare students for fruitful careers.
