Professor Flamer teaches gospel performance and has advised SF State's Gospel Gators for close to a decade. She also teaches composition courses for the Department and the College of Ethnic Studies that are required for Africana Studies majors (such as AFRS 214 and ETHS 300 - GWAR).  One of Professor Flamer's thesis research projects examined Black teachers teaching Black adult learners using creative arts and music. She is acclaimed in the Bay area for her longitudinal practice concerning gospel music and performance. She received her M.Ed. from SF State, and she is also an alumna of SF State who double majored in English Creative Writing and Africana Studies. While she has taught other courses in Africana Studies, her current courses entail Gospel Workshop (AFRS 230) and Second-Year Composition (AFRS 214). These courses directly support the CSU-wide mandates concerning Student Success and Graduation Initiatves (SSGI) and degree completion endeavors such as First-Year Experience (FYE) and related student-centered persistence models implemented by the Department of Africana Studies as well as the SF State University.

Professor serves as Faculty Advisor to Jabulani (Black Graduation), SFSU Gospel Choir (Gospel Gators), Habesha Student Union, African Student Association, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority.
