Welcome to my website!


2013/14 has been quite exciting so far: I am teaching two new, UC/CSU-transferrable courses in our program: ESL 8, a high-advanced writing course leading up to English 101, as well as LING 3, an online course introducing students to the field of Psycholinguistics. I also organized and moderated a panel on the future of community college ESL at the CATESOL 2013 conference in San Diego. My panel presentation on the academic preparedness of ESL students was published as an article in CATESOL News, Spring 2014. In Spring 2014, I also gave a presentation to CSU Long Beach linguistics students on careers in TESOL.


I teach ESL and linguistics in the LACC English/ESL Department. My teaching experience and academic service are described on the Bio page of this site. The Courses tab above lists the courses taught this year.


The site’s Research page contains the publications and presentations related to my research interests: adult student motivation, social identity, and social context of language learning, as well as the use of arts in TESOL. I am particularly pleased with the recent publication of three book chapters in International Perspectives in English Language Teaching: Motivation (London: Palgrave Macmillan), Multilingual and Multicultural Pedagogy: The Actor in Globalized Context (Paris: Editions des Archives Contemporaines), and in Multilingual Identities (Berlin: Peter Lang).
