Teaching at Sea
Leading the seismic data processing component of the first ever open-access, open-participation allowed me to teach participants hands-on skills. Maintaining at sea duties for myself and the cruise participants while teaching really drove home the need for clear and efficient communication in classroom settings.
Filling in as an instructor for courses such as Reflection Seismology; Remote Sensing; and Oceanography while in graduate school helped me really see the impact of each lecture as it fits into a larger curriculum.
I acted as a teaching assistant for nine introductory physics courses including: intro for majors; intro for non-majors; and honors physics and the sound of music. These courses allowed me to assist and evaluate students in small group settings and dig deep into helping with common struggles and hangups over a wide array of student backgrounds.
