Faculty & Staff
Professor, German and TESL/Applied Linguistics
Research and teaching interests: I teach all levels of German and am passionate about language teaching and helping to develop new language teachers for the future. I love working on practical projects like language textbooks, hoping that this work makes language learning more fun for students. Most recently, I've been working on campus on our project for the QEP on Global Learning.
