I have held teaching positions at the University of Alberta, University of Oklahoma, and University of Central Oklahoma. I have also taught at the Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute (CILLDI) and at the Institute on Collaborative Language Research (CoLang), and am looking forward to teaching at CoLang again this summer. In another life, I taught ESL to university students at a private language institute, French to high school students, and English to primary school students in France.
