Faculty Fellows, 2022-23
Faculty Fellows make a 1-2 year commitment to explore pedagogical practices within and beyond our campus, fostering an engaged teaching community using contemporary, research-tested best practices. This competitive fellowship includes a stipend for attending teaching conferences and funding for an annual course release.

Creativity and collaboration are increasingly important in strengthening our ability to be flexible in an ever-changing world. Drawing on my experience both professionally and pedagogically, I invite faculty to explore creativity and collaboration as tools for experiential engagement for both their students and themselves.
Through the Faculty Fellowship, I will also support faculty in developing ideas that may include high-impact off- campus learning experiences, new courses, interdisciplinary collaborations, and expanding courses to create creative spaces for students to further imagine what could be.

Supporting teachers to develop their practice has always been a passion of mine. I've worked with pre-service and practicing teachers at all levels, mostly in math and science. My interest is in supporting Abington faculty (STEM or any field) to consider ways they can grow as educators. I have experience with supporting educators to use more active learning, design learning activities, and develop anti-bias pedagogies. Seeing each other in action and modeling experiences are great ways to open up your practice for growth.

I'm interested in increasing and improving active learning in STEM classrooms. Students work better as active learners, engaging in the material rather than just experiencing knowledge passively. As a faculty fellow, I'm looking to help support teachers incorporate active learning in their classrooms. In addition, I want to provide different professional development opportunities for teachers at all levels of experience. We should be developing communities where we can all learn and work to improve our teaching together.
