Santa Catalina Island, California

I have more than ten years of experience teaching in higher education. While at UC Irvine, I actively worked to improve my teaching as a Senior Pedagogical Fellow of UC Irvine’s Center for Engaged Instruction (now known as the Division of Teaching Excellence and Innovation). I continue to develop my pedagogical skills, including participating in ESCALA‘s summer 2020 training for faculty at Hispanic-serving institutions (HSIs) and Saddleback College’s Online Educator Certificate Program during Spring 2018. At Angelo State, I am a member of the advisory council for the Faculty Learning Commons, which supports faculty teaching with programming and mini-grants.

I have been trained broadly in US, East Asian, and World History. As an instructor of record and a teaching assistant, I have taught a range of courses in History, Humanities, Asian American Studies, and Geography at Angelo State University, CSU Dominguez Hills, Saddleback College, UC Irvine, and the University of British Columbia. I strive to expand my knowledge of Asian history to benefit my students, roughly half who are seeking teacher certification.  To this end, I participated in the 2019 NEH Summer Institute Colonial Experiences and Their Legacies in Southeast Asia, which allowed me to update content in many of my Asian history courses, especially “Asia in the Age of Imperialism” and “Women in Asian History.”
