I am thrilled to be teaching ESL at Ohio University in beautiful Athens! I started my TESOL career in Egypt, first teaching 7th graders at an American school in Cairo and later teaching undergraduates at the American University in Cairo. It didn’t take long for me to fall in love with the Middle East, international travel, and language learning and teaching. In addition, I enjoy being outdoors, playing tennis, hiking, biking, and skiing, as well as exploring underwater worlds with a snorkel or scuba tank.
