Hi! My name is Jieun Ryu and I am from South Korea, born and raised. I got my BA in English Linguistics and literature in Korea. I received my Master's degree from the University of Arizona in Language, Reading and Culture. I started the SLAT program in the Fall of 2009. My current interests are bilingualism, second language Use and Pedagogy. I taught English in Korea, and I have taught Korean to children and undergraduates since I came to Tucson. This inspiring teaching experience led me to explore in the field of language teaching, especially heritage language learning, bilingualism and content based learning. Personally, I enjoy traveling!!
