I view language as embodied and identities as performed. That is, language is not divorced from those who produce it and should not be analyzed as devoid of social meaning. Using this framework, I appreciate and value variation as inherent to understanding any language variety. As a linguist, I have incorporated this conceptualization into my teaching practice.
Below is my teaching experience as an instructor of linguistics:
CALS 426: Chicanx and Latinx Sociolinguistics (Sonoma State)
SPAN 304: Introduction to Spanish Linguistics (Sonoma State)
SSC 280: Intro to Linguistics and Language (Mount Tamalpais College at San Quentin Prison)
