While in graduate school, I taught a variety of classes including philosophy of law, philosophy and public policy, and social and political ethics. In recognition of my work as an instructor, I was given the Tulane Philosophy Department's Graduate Student Award for Excellence in Teaching. Since receiving my PhD, I taught the Fall 2019 seminar "Law, Morality, and Legal Interpretation" at the Tulane University School of Law, which was focused on the debate between legal philosophers H.L.A. Hart and Ronald Dworkin.
Quotes From Student Evaluations
Professor Boom is a demanding grader, which is a good thing. He expects you to step up to the challenge of tackling dense, nuanced ideas of jurisprudence. Although it caused me some amount of stress, I can say that I am a better thinker and writer because of his expectations.
It's obvious that Prof. Boom is extremely knowledgeable but it's also become apparent how much he cares about teaching and his students. He's always available and gives more feedback than I've ever gotten from a teacher, making it easier for me to improve and understand what he's looking for.
Professor Boom was a standout professor in almost every way imaginable. Despite the material being dry, he was enthusiastic and engaging with all of the students. He was able to simplify the material in a way I was able to understand. The was the first philosophy class I have ever taken and in the beginning it was certainly a struggle, however, Professor Boom literally molded me into a philosophy student, constantly challenging me, helping me with papers (he left 40 comments one of my first drafts), and always being available for help or discussion.
