My new old passion

I love teaching. Dude, I totally hit the jackpot when I started teaching adult ESL (that's English as a Second Language). I love it so much, I'm going to educate myself further in the art of TESOL (that's Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). Yep, I finished school and now I'm going back. Am I a nerd or what?

To top it off, I'm even writing two proposals for topics to present on at the So Cal regional CATESOL conference this fall, which is being held at Biola. And I'm thinking about what class to use my free audit on, some upper level TESOL class, for sure.

Yep, I'm a nerd, and I love it.

  1. Does that mean you did a short certificate and now are doing an MA, or did an MA and now doing a PhD? Don't know how these things work in the US

  2. I finished my MA in Applied Linguistics, with a concentration in Theoretical Linguistics. Now I'm going back for a one year TESOL cert, which is the same number of elective units for a second concentration, But, since I'm not in an MA program anymore, its just a plain certificate.
