Favorite Courses I Teach:

One is in the MATESL program, Testing and Assessment in TESL/TEFL. I enjoy this because I love the subject, and my students are so motivated and interesting. The other is with international students in the Academic English Program. This course is rewarding because the students are preparing to study in a U.S. college or university. They are extremely motivated, work hard, and we can clearly see the progress they make.

Research Interests:

 Second language assessment; vocabulary and semantics in TESL; peace education
