Elizabeth SpeckerOff the to the left, there are links to my CV, Research & Projects, and Professional Information

I currently live in Sacramento, California

In the past, I've lived in:
upstate New York (Schenectady & Plattsburgh)

Vaslui, Romania
Athens & Columbus, Ohio
Tucson, Arizona


I like to learn...


As a consequence, I've been a student for a long, long time. I've also been teaching for a long, long time. They seem to go hand in hand.

I also enjoy the outdoors-including light hiking, kayaking, and breathing fresh air. Traveling and seeking new places and cultures combines most of the above: I get to learn while enjoying the outdoors and new places. So far I've been through most of the US, a bit of Canada and Mexico, Costa Rica, Western Europe and parts of Eastern Europe, Turkey and Egypt.

When I'm not teaching, grading papers, or meandering in a new place, I attempt to grow plants with my brown thumb, spend time with my family, and attend to the absorption of pop culture via television and movies... and I love a good book.
