Jenny with students outside a building

Teaching is both a responsibility and a privilege. Preparing students for structural engineering requires combining material behavior, physics, mechanics of materials and design code requirements.

My goals in teaching are the following:

  1. Reinforce work in previous classes by applying it to current work.

  2. Expose students to building codes and fundamental physics behind specific equations to consider flexure, shear or other failure modes.

  3. Motivate students to ask questions and compare engineering models to real world situations.

  4. Stimulate independent thinking and reading outside of class.

Classes that I teach and samples of laboratory activities are shown below.
