TEACHING

Who I am as an instructor today is informed by a lifetime of experiences as a first-generation student in higher education. My teaching philosophy is rooted in Communicative Language Teaching and revolves around the major principles of:

FOSTERING INCLUSIVITY AND COLLABORATION

CULTIVATING APPRECIATION OF LINGUISTIC DIVERSITY

PROMOTING RESEARCH APPLICABLE TO REAL-LIFE

I have taught and designed courses that tackle different aspects of language and linguistics from introductory courses to advanced ones that focused on phonetics, phonology, and sociolinguistics.

HISPANIC LINGUISTICS

Ander has a way of getting you excited about the topic at-hand, even if you had no previous interest in it [...] I was never a linguistics person, but Ander and his enthusiasm prompted me to create a project about the different sounds and accents of Spanish in Spain.

To Ander, teaching a course means more than having students receive a good grade. It means engaging with students and igniting our own interests and passions through whatever we were learning.
