Teaching: My field is Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), so I teach techniques of second language teaching, TESOL curriculum and materials development, etc. either face-to-face or online.

Research: My research interests include distance education and computer-assisted language learning. Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language and immigrant identity are also interests of mine.

Service: I'm on the Distance Education Advisory Committee, Council of Professional Education, Department Evaluation Committee, and Department Technology Committee, among others.

Interests/Passions Outside of Academe: I like to read, and a relaxing activity is reading magazines while drinking coffee and eating Godiva cheesecake at Barnes and Noble! Another interest is watching HGTV.

Times when I can meet: My schedule is rather unpredictable, so meeting times can be decided together.
