I taught domestic and international study abroad for 7+ years, taught in universities for 7+ years and have served on various university and academy steering and search committees.
STEAM Related Experience or Expertise
Every literature course I’ve ever taught deals with the intersections of art, history, science, politics, philosophy, and religion. My dissertation was done in the literature and art history departments and dealt with an early modern practice (curiosity collection) that lived at the intersection of art, science, and exploration.
Salem Through My Eyes
Salem is a community made up of ambitious young people with varied interests. Students come here because they want to dive into their education without fear of criticism or limitation.
In college, my summer job was leading backpacking trips in New Mexico. I continue to teach a college Shakespeare course that concludes with two weeks in the UK.
