A Big "Hello" to all ESL Blog-Readers and Forum Participants,

For those of you who don't know me (and that's probably almost everybody) my name is Lee Hobbs and I'll be taking over the ESL Lesson Plan blog for a bit as Michelle is currently on extended leave (okay don't start throwing the tomatoes yet!). Please read on:

As the newly-appointed kid on the virtual ESL block, I’d like to first say hello to all the loyal ESL blog readers out there. For those who have already written to me, I thank you for the warm welcome.

I've been assigned to stand in for Michelle, who did a fine job, for both the ESL Instruct newsletter and this blog. I'll also be around as the newest ESL Forum moderator. For you curious types, here is a little blurb on my background :

As a North American native-speaker of English, I spent six years abroad working in the emerging ESL field of Central Europe during the 1990s. During that time, I had the opportunity to work closely with various sectors of ESL teaching, e.g. public grade-schools, public universities and private language schools. Now, in addition to writing newsletters for the publishers of ESL Instruct, I am presently teaching college classes in the United States and completing my doctoral work.

I look forward to hearing from everyone out there. Also keep your eyes peeled for the latest edition of the ESL Instruct newsletter...I'll be authoring the October edition.

With kind regards,

Lee Hobbs
ESL Instruct, Editor-in-Chief
