Curriculum Vitae

Research Areas:

Teaching Experience

Teaching and learning should be experiential and include extensive recall with a goal of increasing awareness of the social significance, universality, diversity, and complexity of linguistics and language. My goal in all classes is to teach students how to participate more ethically in linguistically diverse communities and conceptualize the value and portability of being able to navigate a new discourse.

Research

As teaching faculty I am interested in research that relates directly to the improvement of my classes. This includes online learning, anxiety in the classroom, TA training, and enhancement.

Service

I have served as the Korean Section Head for many years. This is probably my biggest, most time-consuming, and rewarding citizenship activity. Academic service is important to me because it offers me a chance to interact with other colleagues with who I normally might not meet or interact with.
