My award-winning pedagogy is concerned with engaging with the diverse experiences and perspectives of my students while promoting community- and project-based learning. In the classroom, I draw strong links between theory and practice while centering solutions-based policy ideas for racial and economic justice. I have received three distinct student-selected teaching awards in three years on the faculty SDSU. 

I teach an undergraduate-level Introduction to Urban Planning (PA 320) course and graduate-level seminars in Urban Planning Foundations (CP 630), Housing and Community Development (CP635), and Community Land-Use Planning (CP 690) at the School of Public Affairs at San Diego State University. 

Previously, I taught a workshop on Strategies for Community Engagement (January 2021), "Planning Methods" with Professor Malo Hutson (Fall 2019) and was the primary instructor for a required Quantitative Methods bootcamp for master's students in Urban Planning at Columbia GSAPP (Summer 2016 and 2017). I was also a teaching assistant for graduate-level "History and Theory of Planning" courses at Columbia GSAPP (Fall 2015, Spring 2017). 

I was the primary instructor for an "Introduction to Urban Life" class for undergraduates at Hunter College (Fall 2017).
