I have taught and trained English to Speakers of Other Languages in University and Department of Defense settings since 2007. My experience focuses on ESOL for practical and professional purposes, so the lessons I share here are perfect for university or adult education. My experiences have shown me the usefulness of blending ESOL for everyday life with professional and academic needs. I also taught ESL in a high school for a year, so I am familiar with the focus on literacy and common core style lessons. I learned to appreciate teenagers and what interests them. Lessons that draw on connecting, comparing, and building on both cultures in teenagers are fun to teach. I have taught all skills to adult learners, and have experience teaching in programs that assess progress with all forms of assessments. I am familiar with lessons that support progress in the ACTFL OPI and the ILR OPI.


I enjoy mixing levity and challenge. Teaching adults from around the world is an awesome experience, so I share lessons here that give time for people to share who they are and what they know, and then progress to American culture. Adult students want to use their time wisely and want to know what they are learning, so I form and share objectives for each lesson. I end lessons with a review of objectives as well as formative assessments that ask adults what they will take away and apply in their lives. Each lesson posted on TpT has multiple tips in the the slide notes for how to implement based on my own experiences with class sizes from one-on-one to 30. I like to use cooperative learning methods, the experiential learning model, and project-based learning. Teaching practices with these influences are integrated in the materials here. I have also been influenced by the training model of the Defense Language Institute and the organization where I currently work. Each lesson here has a warm-up, body, and conclusion in the style of my current teaching context.

I love what I do. I am here to share materials that have been tried and refined; I know how hard it can be to take time to plan lessons from scratch to teach ESOL. The people are unique and all have different knowledge and experience and goals when it comes to English. The lessons here are in the format of PPT with hidden slides for teachers, printable slides with handouts for students, and additional notes in the NOTES of slides so the materials are actually worth buying. Teachers like to create and recreate, so my hope is that people put their own twist on things they buy here to meet the needs of the people they teach.
