Hello and welcome to the Aoyama Gakuin University students who will be participating in a two-week program of sightseeing, culture, and language study at the Maryland English Institute of the University of Maryland. This blog provides a window into the planning stages of the program and gives participants the opportunity to interact with the staff prior to the program.
I have been a Lecturer in English as a Second Language at the University of Maryland, College Park (Maryland English Institute) since 1981. Since beginning my ESL career in France in 1971, I have taught primarily in higher education settings. I also enjoy working with adults from the immigrant community.
I live in Gaithersburg, Maryland with my husband Christoforos and our daughter, Vicki.
