I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Communications Arts & Sciences from Western Michigan University in Kalamazoo and my Master of Arts in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti.
I have taught English as a Foreign Language in Umeå, Sweden; Mexico City, Mexico; and both Narva and Tallinn, Estonia. I have been teaching EAP at Valencia College for nearly 20 years.
I love to travel and to meet people from other cultures. I also love to watch films, to see beautiful art in museums, and to watch live theater. I also love learning languages. I have learned Swedish and some Spanish and French.
