About Erin

After graduating from NYU in 1994, I ventured overseas to South Korea where I started my teaching career. I spent 2 years teaching EFL in Seoul, SK. After leaving Seoul, I lived in South East Asia experiencing live overseas. After moving back to New York City, I continued my education getting my Master's in TESOL. While comp.eting my degree, I was an eighth-grade middle school Language Arts teacher. After more exciting teaching experiences in New York and the Middle East, I moved to RI. In 2006, I was hired as an adjunt professor in 2006 and became a full-time faculty in 2007. I am truly fortunate to teach at JWU and consider myself fortunate to be in the classroom with today's students. I am fortunate to experience life-longteaching and learning with the students at JWU.

“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin

Teaching Interests

Getting my students involved in their learning is the key to my teaching. I think that if we all 'do' and not just listen, learning is a more dynamic experience. We should all be life-long learners and embrace the idea that knowledge is power, and as we sit in our classes and experience learning, we are changing the world.
