Welcome to my professional portfolio! I have been teaching English as a second language in an academic context for over seven years. I had my first taste of teaching as a volunteer in Russia working with young children through language-based activities. I received my M.A. in TESOL from Brigham Young University and am currently a continuing lecturer at Purdue University Calumet. My professional interests include:

  • Computer-assisted Language Learning (CALL)
  • Academic Listening and Reading
  • Pronunciation
  • Web-based Media
  • Tutoring and mentoring
  • Web design

I love working with computers, developing websites for classes and testing, and incorporating technology-based activities. For details, see my Technology in the Classroom and MA Project page.
