I started working as an instructor in the summer of 2015, with a course entitled “Diversity in Family Forms.” I have now taught two other courses, “Feminist Theory” as well as “Social Inequalities.” I find it incredibly exciting to engage students on a wide range of issues related to power and inequality in their everyday life and to help them connect their experiences with existing norms and systems that structure our lives.

For the past 7 years, I have worked as a Teaching Assistant (TA) in the department of Sociology at UBC. Over the years, I have worked as a TA for the following courses:

  • Introduction to Sociology
  • Sociology of Sexualities
  • Gender Relations
  • Human sexuality
  • Sociology of Consumerism and Consumption
  • Sociology of Natural Resources

I have also lectured several times in both Sociology of Sexualities and Gender Relations, about queer youth, heteronormativity, as well as the intersection of sexuality and schooling. I love all the opportunities I get to teach in one form or another – engaging with students on sociological topics is something that I find both exciting and rewarding, and I like to think that my enthusiasm for this work comes through!
