Teaching English has not only been my career, but my passion, for the past twenty years. I taught English as a first language in Middle School in the USA in my first 16 years of experience and then decided to teach it as a second language in China for the past three years. It has been an exciting, life-changing journey for me as well as for my local and international students. I am very grateful the English language has afforded me the opportunity to teach in Indonesia as well this year, and I will strive to develop my students’ English proficiency so they may also have greater choices and options in their future endeavors. For me, there is no greater joy than to help a student fulfill his or her dreams and goals in life!
