Message from Kathleen Bailey, Ph.D.
Hello and welcome to Anaheim University's MA in TESOL.
I have been involved in English language teaching and language teacher education for over thirty years, and I still find the field as interesting as it was when I was first starting out. In this profession we meet people from all over the world, touch their lives, and help them improve their own situations through language learning.
My own particular research interests are in classroom observation, teacher supervision and development, content-based instruction, and language assessment. I also particularly enjoy the teaching of speaking. I am looking forward to discussing these and other issues in applied linguistics with you, both online and in our face-to-face sessions.
