Bio

I received an international student exchange when 19 years of age. I was chosen to go to Denmark in 1959, and was required to learn their language as one of my first challenges. This changed my entire life's thinking and acting.

I received an international student exchange when 19 years of age. I was chosen to go to Denmark in 1959, and was required to learn their language as one of my first challenges. This changed my entire life's thinking and acting.

I learned the art of simplifying your words, phrases, and language to simple but concise language. I learned to use comparative language and thinking to help connect concepts from the teacher to the level of the student or students. I can now communicate in other languages besides English. When teaching in Anchorage, Alaska, I discovered that 22 different languages were spoken in children's homes, and I used that to help the students embrace diversity and pride in themselves. Learning also increased because the students knew I cared about them and their cultures.

I have lived, traveled, and studied in Europe and Mexico for business and pleasure. I have taught ESL and TOEFL classes in Queretaro, Mexico, which included several students who spoke several languages and cultures in their homes. I have taught in Paris, France, in a Business University to help their students understand foreign businessmen and their customs by teaching in English. I bring together the things we have in common to connect us as students and teacher, using poetry, music, jokes and humor.

I have taught English as a Foreign Language, Test of English as a Foreign Language, American language and social customs, and used local and international media sources to increase attention, focus, and learning. I have even taken students out of the classroom to visit historical and cultural places and events. My students enjoy learning the mechanics of language through reading, writing, vocabulary and conversation, which is actually the focus of language.

Students learn through listening, reading, writing and conversation. I encourage and plan activities to increase ability and skills. My students will enjoy both the fun and actual increase of knowledge in language, culture, history, and living peoples. It is my pleasure to share life experiences, and how to increase their ability to explore on their own when they have the knowledge and skills necessary to take on new challenges.
