Et cetera

After finishing my Bachelor’s degree in English, I moved to China and taught English at a university near Xian for two years.  I had a wonderful experience there and learned that I love teaching English, so after that I decided to come to Ohio University to earn my Master’s degree in Linguistics. I was a teaching assistant in OPIE while I studied, and now that I have recently graduated I am enjoying working in OPIE as an instructor. I love teaching and learning with my students and colleagues here in OPIE.
