Kimberly has been teaching ESOL courses at Bowling Green State University since 2004, receiving her MATESOL from BGSU. Before this time, she taught teacher preparation and linguistics courses at Bluffton University and also had the opportunity to teach for a short time in Viet Nam. At BGSU, her primary role has been in ESOL, teaching graduate and undergraduate students in both speaking/listening and writing courses. Additionally, she occasionally teaches English 3800, an introduction to linguistics course for future English teachers, and English 5100, a TESOL Methodology Course. Kimberly enjoys working with students from different departments across campus, and one of her favorite parts of being an ESOL teacher is that she learns just as much from her students as they learn from her.
