Why I Love Teaching at Molloy College
I love that Molloy offers an environment conducive for effective mentoring for students. The smaller class sizes allow us to develop fruitful relationships with our students, fostering their development toward becoming competent, compassionate counselors. I also know that the greater Molloy Community shares this passion and our students will be supported both within and outside of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program.
My primary goals in academia are to provide appropriate and useful mentorship to students and be an effective educator on issues related to culture, diversity, and social justice work. I firmly believe a compassionate mentor can make a significant difference. I pride myself on being available to students in need of direction, support, community, or fellowship. I also place high importance on issues related to diversity, multiculturalism, and advocacy. It is my aim to ensure all our counselors are prepared to evoke change and promote equity in their communities and places of work.
What I am working on
I am currently working multiple projects, including exploring the experiences of racially ambiguous people of color, examining the experiences of people of color in academia, and researching effective pedagogical practices for educators teaching diversity and social justice work.
Critical thinking about course content and the interplay with diversity is central to my teaching philosophy. My goal is to encourage students to critically examine their world and practice, to ultimately provide equitable services and disrupt existing systems of disadvantage.
