Teaching

I am a Teaching Fellow in Civic, Liberal, and Global Education (COLLEGE) at Stanford, where I will teach first-year interdisciplinary courses on “the Spirit of Democracy” (fall), “Citizenship” (winter), and “the Politics of Development” (spring). 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. Additionally, I have designed courses entitled “Comparative Revolutions: The Arab Spring and Its Aftershocks”, “Political Life After Dictatorship,” and the “Politics of the Modern Middle East and North Africa.” 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.
