Growing up in a military family, I attended 22 schools. Due to constantly changing schools, I was not the best academically, when I started as a student at Vincennes University. The university provided me the opportunity to grow and develop. When I graduated with my Masters degrees, I became a 4.0 student. I have been teaching since 1995 in a variety of subjects and colleges. I served in the US Army Guards in a heavy helicopter unit for 3 years. Then I returned to school and majored in robotics. After graduating, I worked with computers and networking. I even taught electronics and computers for Vincennes University at a local prison. I transitioned into Language Arts after volunteering for Knox County as a literacy tutor. My passion for classical literature was renewed, and I began work on a masters in Literature of the Humanities. As a child, I traveled and lived in several countries. Having been exposed to diversity intensified my love for working with students from diverse backgrounds. Presently, I am teaching students in the English as an Additional Language Program. My focus is to help students to increase their English Language Skills to enter college and the workforce.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy creating cards, painting, writing, reading, and I continue to work on computers and websites. I am a big Dr. Who fan and have watched every episode.  I am raising three fabulous children and enjoy traveling with them as a family.

English as an Additional Language

             

 

The English as an Additional Language Program at Vincennes University is an intensive English language acquisition program. Classes are small, between 10 to 20 students. Students focus on developing listening, speaking, reading, and writing comprehension. In addition, students practice pronunciation and expand their vocabulary. The classes are eight weeks long. Full-time students take two classes per semester and are in class 20 to 25 hours per week. The smaller class size allows the students the opportunity to receive individual attention, weekly feedback, and participate in meaningful class activities. The classes prepare the students for college level work and the work world.

Vincennes University was one of the first two-year colleges in the nation to offer an ESL program. With more than thirty years of experience, we have a proven success record of teaching English to international and resident students. Students are placed in ESL classes based on their proficiency. Vincennes University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
