Teaching

I have extensive teaching experience at the university, community college, high school, and middle school levels. I have long emphasized multicultural exchange in the classroom. In Fall 2017, as part of a Community College Teaching Fellowship funded by Yale’s MacMillan Center, I incorporated Middle Eastern Studies into a Macroeconomics course at Gateway Community College. Prior to coming to Yale, I worked as a classroom teacher at the International Schools of Choueifat in Cairo, Egypt, where I taught AP US History, in addition to middle school English and Social Studies. I also have accrued a wealth of experience working with writers, as an English teacher, writing tutor, and editor. In the fall, I will serve as the senior essay advisor in Yale’s Ethics, Politics, and Economics program.
