I am currently a Ph.D candidate at the University of Florida in Educational Technology. My research interests involve using technology in foreign language learning environments. I spent eleven years overseas teaching general English, instructing pre-service educators in TESOL, training in-service educators in SLA, consulting schools, building courses, writing learning materials, and working with a city government for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
I earned my MAT from SIT Graduate Institute (School for International Training) in 2008. In addition to my eleven years teaching overseas in Korea and China, I volunteered my time helping immigrants learning English in America as I attended Coastal Carolina University as an undergrad. I have really enjoyed my years as a foreign/second language educator.
