MyPicture

My specialization is Victorian literature and adult ESL education with an emphasis on introducing CALL into the classroom.

I am an advocate for the use of technology in the classroom and believe that the current use of classroom technology is often poorly implemented, cumbersome, and ineffective.

I pride myself in devising creative ways to implement classroom technology that enhances learning outcomes and provides students with a creative outlet to build and demonstrate their skills.
