Hello, I am an ESL teacher at the University of Oregon's American English Institute where I am currently teaching writing classes and speaking classes. I began teaching EFL in Brazil many years ago and haven't stopped since that time. During all of this time, I've never been bored, but I've seen a huge shift in the tools available to teachers over that time. I got my first Mac Plus computer in 1987, and I've been learning some of the many ways to use technology in the classroom and in my professional life ever since. This podcasting class has opened up an array of new tools for me to play with, so I'm excited to try them out!
