My History:

After living overseas and teaching English while in the Peace Corps, I got my MA in Applied Linguistics from Ohio University.  I worked at Ohio State University for two years in the American Language Program and then traveled west to Tucson, AZ.  I earned my Ph.D. in Second Language Acquisition and Teaching at the University of Arizona in 2008 and then traveled further west to Sacramento, CA - and currently teach ESL at American River College.
