My approach to teaching takes into account students' skills and knowledges. I have taught at Hispanic Serving Institutions for over 8 years years and have developed courses that cultivate a collaborative, inclusive, equitable atmosphere that allow students to learn vis-a-vis the diverse lived experiences of their peers. My courses support student learning by centering student-to-student exchanges, and my syllabi draw from a wide range of textual and audiovisual materials that reflect our mediated and informational world. The activities, assignments, and discussions are designed with the cultural and political realities of our twenty-first century in mind, and they equip students to engage with those realities by developing a capacity for critical inquiry applied to the analysis and discussion of Latin American literary and audiovisual arts.
