Bio/Description

I love English as a Second Language teaching. I am a volunteer. I encourage everyone to try it. Even as a substitute. It is fun, as easy or as challenging as you want it to be. I am not a trained teacher, no experience, and no fluency in another language. My students are eager, dedicated, adults.

I do not work, I focus my time and attention to my volunteer work, it is a luxury. The majority of that time is spentI on a MultiSite and blogs that I created for the class. I also have a personal site and blogs. I incorporated computer skills into my class. Most of my students have never touched a computer. Many have children. I love personal technology and the web – I spend hours on them, now with purpose. We have a great computer lab that is unused. Perfect!

Interests

Working on and with WordPress MultiSites – one each for my class and personal use, Rome, Copenhagen, art history, history, international affairs, languages, religion and culture, endless hours on tech devices, gadgets and computers, mini dachshunds.

WordPress Origin Story

Wow! Do I remember? It was an evolution alternating between priorities of form and function. It has been quite an intense journey filled with excitement, frustration, success, and decimations. And a long story. I think my use is interesting. And that I am interesting. But I will try to be merciful.
