EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND

  • M.A. ESL/Linguistics, University of Texas

EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
  I believe that every student has the potential to make a difference in society and that it is the job of the instructor to guide them. In fact, the more difficult the student - the greater reward. If all else fails, however, send them to Swamp School.
 
CURRENT PROJECTS

Currently teaching and working on curriculum design for the new degree in T& I Studies.
 
INTERESTS
