Teaching

I am a Teaching Fellow in Civic, Liberal, and Global Education (COLLEGE) at Stanford, where I teach first-year interdisciplinary courses:

  • The Spirit of Democracy” (fall)
  • Citizenship” (winter)
  • The Politics of Development” (spring).

Additionally, I have designed the following courses:

  • Comparative Revolutions: The Arab Spring and Its Aftershocks” (syllabus)
  • Introduction to Comparative Politics” (syllabus)
  • Political Life After Dictatorship” (syllabus)
  • Politics of the Modern Middle East and North Africa” (syllabus).

I previously co-taught Introduction to Macroeconomics at Gateway Community College in New Haven, along with Lorraine Li. As part of a Yale MacMillan Center fellowship, we redesigned the course to re-center it around the Middle East and North Africa and incorporate participatory principles. I also worked as a teaching assistant in Introduction to International Relations and Introduction to Comparative Politics at Yale University. I have extensive experience teaching writing, including as a senior essay advisor in the Ethics, Politics, and Economics department at Yale University (2019-2020) At Yale, I completed substantial pedagogical training and earned a Certificate of College Teaching Preparation from the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning. Before graduate school, I taught middle school English and high school history at the International Schools of Choueiefat in Cairo, Egypt.
