I have been teaching ESL for a year at Mid Ga Tech. I feel it is the work I was meant to do since my grandmother came here from Sicily and never learned to read or write herself and she felt very strongly that I should stay in school.
I love my work. I use humor to relax students, and maintain a respectful, inclusive environment. I pronounce words carefully and have students repeat after me. I teach American English which includes slang, idioms, and figures of speech since this is how Americans communicate.
