Pages in this resume:
I am a first-generation American, the child of immigrants from Holland. My parents settled in Southern California, where I was born and grew up except for a four-year period when we lived on a kibbutz in Israel. My early exposure to different languages and cultures was probably the critical factor leading to my eventual decision to become an ESL professional. I have a BA in Near Eastern Studies and Linguistics (double major) and an MA in Teaching English as a Second Language. I've been teaching since 1980, writing and editing ESL materials since 1985.
