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 Francisco State University
San Francisco, CA
Sofia grew up speaking Portuguese, but was raised in different countries, acquiring, in the process, English, French, Afrikaans, Spanish and German. Her passion for learning languages naturally evolved into an eager interest in teaching them. After earning a degree in Spanish from UC Berkeley, Sofia sought to broaden her pedagogical focus to include English, and decided to pursue a Master’s in TESOL at SFSU, where she currently teaches academic writing to multilingual students. Her research interests include pragmatics, language and identity, and curriculum development, through which she hopes to help reshape her students’ identities as multicultural individuals, as she continues to reshape hers.
