CATESOL 2016 has ended
Thank you for attending CATESOL 2016 in San Diego!

We appreciate your feedback, which we’ll use in planning 2017 in Santa Clara.

You can view the whole conference schedule by the day and also search for sessions and events by speaker, title, session type, level, and even room! Maps of the Town & Country and the Exhibit Hall are in the menu. You can create and save your personalized conference schedule by creating a free login in sched.org, but you do not need to create a login to use this site! This site - and uploaded materials - will remain available long after the conference.

San Diego Continuing Education
ESL Instructor
San Diego, CA
Maria was born and raised in Lisbon, Portugal. She got her bachelor’s degree in Horticulture in Scotland hoping to later obtain a master’s degree in Landscape Architecture. Her passion for languages, however, led her to pursue a master’s degree in Linguistics, a field she thoroughly enjoys. Maria began her teaching career at San Diego State University teaching Writing to juniors and seniors. She has taught at just about every community college in San Diego County and at some intensive academic programs. Currently, she teaches adults at San Diego Continuing Education and international students at California State University San Marcos. A fluent speaker of four languages, she brings a mix of linguistics and science expertise to her students and is actively involved in professional development organizations and activities including conference presentations. Maria completed a Reading Instruction Certificate from the University of California San Diego, and is interested in developing and implementing teaching/learning solutions that facilitate powerful results in all areas of ESL.
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, taking photos outdoors, and knitting.
