I consider teaching to be among the most rewarding work that I do. I currently hold a Graduate Fellowship for Teaching Excellence (awarded annually to thirteen candidates, nominated from across the university) as well as a Certificate in College and University Teaching from the University of Pennsylvania Center for Teaching and Learning. I have either taught or assisted with teaching the following courses:

PHIL 001: Introduction to Philosophy
PHIL 002: Introduction to Ethics
PHIL 003: History of Ancient Philosophy
PHIL 008: The Social Contract
PHIL 030: Democracy and the Power of Rhetoric
PHIL 211: Ancient Moral Philosophy
PHIL 277: Justice, Law and Morality

I would be excited to teach all of these courses in the future, as well as additional courses in ancient philosophy, ethics, logic, and political philosophy. A complete teaching portfolio (including relevant syllabi and course evaluations) is available upon request.

In addition to my formal teaching, I have also organized a number of teaching-related workshops, both in my capacity as a fellow for teaching excellence and in connection with the American Association of Philosophy Teachers. Here are some of these workshops:

Karen Detlefsen: Teaching Philosophy to Pre-College Students
Susan Sauvé Meyer: Designing and Teaching an Online Course
Brian Reese: Establishing Clear Expectations for Written Work
Errol Lord: Using Office Hours Effectively
Bryan Van Norden: Teaching (and Learning From) Chinese Philosophy
Brian Reese: Engaging with the Community in Your Future Teaching
Lisa Miracchi: Wellness Advising
Michael Weisberg: Media in the Classroom
Daniel Singer: Effective Lecturing

I am also currently working with Karen Detlefsen on a community engagement pilot program aimed at outreach for at-risk and underserved children. To this end, I volunteer at the (Title 1) Benjamin B. Comegys School in West Philadelphia, where we discuss philosophical issues with middle-school students, developing a curriculum that will eventually be implemented at other schools throughout the district.
