I believe that all of my teaching experiences that I had prior to JWU, and the teaching that I have been doing for Johnson & Wales University, enable me to conduct dynamic and engaging learning environments for my students.

Bio

After graduating from NYU with my undergraduate degree in English education, I moved to Seoul, South Korea to teach EFL to adults. I stayed in Seoul, working for ELS Kangnam for two years. 

When I left Seoul, I moved back to the US. I moved back to New York City and began teaching at a middle school in Bushwick, Brooklyn. I taught there for 4 years, and while teaching in Bushwick, I got my master's degree in TESOL. 

From New York, I was hired to work for a royal family in Saudi Arabia, where I stayed for a little less than a year. I returned to New York, finished my master's degree and then left the city. 

I strayed off my teaching path for a few years while I managed a restaurant and hotel on Block Island, RI. 

In 2006, I made my way to Providence, RI and was hired as an adjunct professor in the ESL department. In the later part of the year, I was hired as a full-time faculty at JWU. I have been teaching here since, and couldn't be happier with my teaching and learning experiences here at JWU.

I have been a professor at JWU since 2006. Most of my teaching has been done in the ESL department, where I actively teach: grammar, writing, communications and reading. I lead student-centered classes and believe in communicative language teaching and learning. 

I am currently working on my Ed.D in TESOL from Anaheim University. What I am studying in this program directly correlates to my teaching at Johnson and Wales University. I believe that through the classes in my doctoral program I will be supporting our global-English speaking students by using the latest theories and teaching innovations in ESL instruction, in my classes at JWU. 

In addition to teaching ESL at Johnson and Wales University, I also teach writing classes for the English department, and will begin teaching ILS classes in September 2017. 

I believe that all of my teaching experiences that I had prior to JWU, and the teaching that I have been doing for Johnson & Wales University, enable me to conduct dynamic and engaging learning environments for my students.
