Hello and welcome to my home on the web. Click About Me to find out a little bit more about me and my goals here. As the header states, this is a place to discuss language learning and teaching. Teaching related posts can be found here.
In a nutshell, I’m a 6th Grade Teacher at Korea International School Jeju. Prior to Jeju, I spent two years in the same position at American International School of Ho Chi Minh City. I taught university students and trained Korean English teachers in a post-graduate certificate program in South Korea for 10 years before moving to Vietnam. The move from higher education to middle school was a big one for my family and I; fortunately, we’ve landed in a great community with a fantastic group of supportive colleagues. My other roles include husband, dad, bug-smasher, taxi, general problem-solver, and superhero.
The goal of this blog, or site, is to connect with other teachers, trainers, professors, anyone interested, and share ideas about language teaching and learning. In the next few months, I’ll be blogging on several topics including middle school English Language Arts, middle school tech integration, and life on Jeju Island. I look forward to the discussions we’ll have and the things we’ll learn.
