Welcome to my
I am an ESL
Instructor at North Seattle Community College. I have been teaching ESL,
ABE and computers in the Seattle Community College District since 2001. I
have also worked with international students for in Barcelona, Spain, at
the ELS Center at Seattle University and at the University of Washington.
I received an MA in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other
Languages) from Seattle Pacific University.
I became a
teacher because I like to help others. As an ESL teacher, I also enjoy
getting to know my students and learning about different cultures. I like
helping students adjust to a new society and plan for their future here
in America. I believe it is my responsibility to advocate for the
educational interests of my students.
professional interests include college transition, advanced
reading/writing, online/blended learning, and faculty professional
development. I am an active member of the following organizations;
WAESOL, TESOL and COABE. I sit on the WAESOL board and I am a Washington
State Learning Standards Cadre member for Writing and Listening/Speaking.
