Hello there

Greetings. This is my first post on this brand new blog about living and teaching in Hong Kong. I am very fortunate to be offered a job at City University of Hong Kong ( teaching ESL. I'll be officially starting the job in about 6 weeks. I'm currently in the U. S. This will be my first experience living in Hong Kong, although I've visited it many times before.

Some other things you might want to know about me:

* I have an M.A. in Foreign Language Education from The University of Texas at Austin.

* I taught ESL at several universities in Taiwan, including National Dong Hua University ( in Shoufeng, Taiwan.

* I've studied Mandarin Chinese for over 10 years, although I'm not as fluent as I'd like to be.

* I've done a lot of writing lately. This year, I've had an article published in ESL Magazine ( More importantly, my first book, The Creative Classroom, will be published by Lynx Publishing ( later this year. Go to their website for more information about my book.

Well, I think that's enough for now. Keep checking this space for more about my life in Hong Kong.
