At Harvard, I have had the privilege of teaching for a wide variety of courses and students within English and the Program in General Education, including introductory Old English and the History of the English Language as well as a multidisciplinary introduction to medieval art and culture and an honors seminar on literary theory and postmodern detective fiction, which received a grant from Harvard's Paul John Balson II Enrichment Fund.
I am committed to pedagogy and have written about revivifying Old English verse for beginning students in an essay in Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching. I am also a three-time winner of Harvard's Certificate of Distinction and Excellence in Teaching, which recognizes teachers who receive above a 4.5 out of 5 on quantitative end-of-semester teaching evaluations with five or more participants.
