Welcome to this online portal to my activities at the LACC English/ESL Department. The Biography page of this site addresses my teaching experience and academic service. The Courses tab above lists the courses I teach, primarily ESL writing and reading courses as well as Ling 1 Intro to Linguistics, Ling 2 Sociolinguistics, and Ling 3 Psycholinguistics.

Another topic of interest to me is the pathways from non-credit (adult ed) to credit ESL programs and the related programmatic challenges ESL programs face statewide. I presented twice on this subject in 2016: at the CATESOL 2016 Convention in San Diego (to 200 participants) and its Northern Regional Conference in Berkeley.

The site’s Research page lists all my publications and presentations in the following areas of applied linguistics and ESL:

  • second language curriculum development
  • teaching research writing in advanced ESL courses
  • academic success in second language learning
  • adult student motivation, social identity, and social context as factors in language learning
  • use of the arts in language learning

As a past chair of the LACCD ESL Discipline Committee, I coordinated the development of our new districtwide, 6-level ESL writing/grammar and reading/vocabulary course series, the work for which I won the David Eskey Award for Curricular Innovation from CATESOL. Facilitating, over the last 3 years, the redesign of the parallel listening/speaking ESL course sequence, I have launched 3 of the 4 levels of these classes at LACC, the first sections of which will be offered in Fall 2017.
