My name is Angel Steadman, and I received my B.A. in English with a minor in Sociology from the University of Tennessee in 2004. After graduating, I worked as a writer, editor, and volunteer ESL teacher for three years before trying my hand at teaching English in Costa Rica. I received my M.A. in teaching ESL through the English Language/Linguistics program here at the University of Arizona in 2010, and since that time, I’ve been working at the Center for English as a Second Language (CESL) as an instructor and program coordinator. I am now the Teacher Training Coordinator at CESL, which means I have the wonderful opportunity to work and collaborate with English teachers from the Tucson community and around the world. My interests include online language teacher education, facilitating collaboration in online environments, and fostering learner autonomy, among many other topics. When I’m not working, I enjoy yoga, traveling, cooking, gardening, and going on long hikes with my dog.
