Teaching

As Instructor of Record, I've taught courses at several different levels, ranging from undergraduate to graduate to high school.

  • Language and Power (LING 50, UC Santa Barbara, large undergraduate lecture)
  • Language in Society (LING 70, UC Santa Barbara, small undergraduate seminar)
  • Teaching Assistant Training Seminar (LING 505, UC Santa Barbara, graduate-level)
  • Special Topics in Spanish (SPAN 282, California Lutheran University, through the UC Santa Barbara SKILLS program)
  • Language and Society (ANTH 104, Santa Barbara City College, through the UC Santa Barbara SKILLS program)

I've been a Teaching Assistant for the following courses:

  • Introduction to Linguistics (LING 20, UC Santa Barbara)
  • Sociocultural Linguistics (LING 131, UC Santa Barbara)
  • Language, Gender, and Sexuality (LING 132, UC Santa Barbara)
  • Second Language Acquisition (LING 141, UC Santa Barbara)
  • Language, Race, and Ethnicity (LING 180, UC Santa Barbara)
  • Language, Power, and Learning (CHST/EDUC/LING 187, UC Santa Barbara)
  • Introduction to Linguistics (LGCS 10, Pomona College)

For the last five years, I've also taught a college-level sociocultural linguistics course to local youth through the UC Santa Barbara School Kids Investigating Language in Life and Society (SKILLS) program. In Santa Barbara, I taught this course at a public high school (2015) and a youth center (2014). In Oxnard, CA, I've implemented the course with the incredible Tequio Youth Group at the Mixteco/Indígena Community Organizing Project (2016, 2017, and 2018).
