Teaching has been instrumental in my life as a cartographer and geographer! I've been surrounded by incredible teachers throughout my undergraduate and graduate work and I hope I've picked up a few things from them along the way. I've had an array of teaching experiences in- and outside of the classroom, including TA and lecture opportunities along with community-driven teaching opportuntities as a MapTime Madison organizer.
The UW–Madison Cartography Lab has provided an amazing learning enviroment where I've been able to contribute to (and gain) mentorship from peers and colleagues. I hope to bring a similar environment wherever I end up. Teaching is hands down one of the most rewarding jobs. It has also greatly enhanced and pushed my research in new directions.
