Instructor, Pellissippi State Community College
September 2015 ─ Present
As an instructor in philosophy, I focus less on abstraction and more on the affective and actionable dimensions of thought. I seek to enable under-resourced college students to develop the skills and critical insights needed for collegiate study by introducing design tools and rhetorical strategies.
Instructor, Christian Academy Knoxville
July 2013 ─ August 2015
I focused on grammatico-historical critical reading in order to provide philosophical scrutiny and rhetorical possibility to Biblical study. As a supplement, I developed digital tools to enable learning flexibility (e.g. podcasts, video lectures, web accessible archives.)
Instructor, Paideia Academy
March 2009 ─ 2013
As an instructor in rhetoric and persuasion, I introduced modern rhetorical critical tools and post-critical rhetorical theory to students. The aim was to stimulate purposeful thinking amongst, rather than against, digital tools. We engaged with key figures in philosophy of rhetoric ranging from Cicero to Cixous.
