Teaching @ Princeton


From 2012-2016 I taught undergraduates at Princeton as a graduate assistant instructor (“preceptor,” in Princeton’s argot), with particular focus on teaching interdisciplinary popular forms. In addition to running course meetings for undergraduate students, I participated in assignment design and course administration. A list of my Princeton teaching experience is below, and a selection of my student evaluations from my teaching at Princeton will be available as part of my dossier on Interfolio.
