I am committed to the practice of innovative pedagogy through the integration of theoretical and methodological approaches in fields that cross disciplinary boundaries, including Anthropology, Education, and Latin@ Studies. I have developed and conducted theory-oriented seminars, methodological workshops, and applied research practica in which I have connected students with community partners. My approach to teaching reflects a deep investment in community engagement as a transformative pedagogical tool. I seek to disrupt strict dichotomies between teacher and student by anchoring my courses in the development of community-based responses to the contemporary challenges with which they are faced.
