I love teaching languages and linguistics. At the college level, I’ve had the opportunity to teach:

As a primary instructor:

  • LING 133: Language, Gender and Sexuality
  • SPAN 1: Elementary Spanish
  • As a teaching assistant:

  • LING 20: Introduction to Linguistics
  • LING 50: Language and Power
  • LING 187: Language, Power, and Learning
  • LING 70: Language and Society
  • I’ve also taught sociolinguistics to youth in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties through the outreach program SKILLS.
