Because of my diverse cultural and linguistic background, my varied educational experiences, and my adaptability to teach and learn new subject matter, I am able to teach a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses, in both Peninsular and Latin-American Literature and Culture. I am also affiliated faculty of the Migration and Ethnic Relations Program at Western.

My main pedagogical objective is to connect my teaching to research and community. I am particularly interested in Community-engaged Learning and both my undergraduate and graduate students have worked with local organizations such as the Canadian Latin-American Association (CALA), The Latino-Canadian Community Corporation, and the Aeolian Music Hall's
El Sistema music-education program.

Some of my favorite courses to teach are: Music, Dance, and Performance of the Hispanic World, Hispanic Popular Culture, Hispanic Culture on Film, and the more general Exploring Hispanic Cultures.

In the spring of 2013, I was one of the recipients of the Community Service Learning Award at Western.
