Industry Event - Welcome Carol to ESL Lesson Plan!

Greetings ESL enthusiasts,

Please allow me the honor or presenting to you the newest member of the ESLemployment team and writer for ESL-Lesson-Plan, Carol Rueckert.

For those of you who might be unfamiliar with her frequent posts and replies to this blog, ESL School, the English-Blog, and ESL-Jobs-Forum, Carol Rueckert hails from a small town in Minnesota, USA, where she obtained a bachelor's degree in Communications. After graduation, she moved to China, where . . .

. . . she worked primarily in the ESL field in a variety of positions, which include head teacher, material development manager, education manager and senior writer/editor for an ESL publishing house.

After several years working in the ESL field, she obtained her CELTA and is now in the process of applying for masters programs in Applied Linguistics/TESL in the UK. Besides teaching, training teachers, and developing materials, she also dabbles in writing, publishing articles for BBC online, Seoul Times, The Insider's Guide to Beijing, City Weekend, and Time Out Beijing.

Her books include 100 Topics for Speaking, Reading and Writing, and TOEFL Prep. She is also an Education Consultant for VEA, and Australian production company that specializes in Educational materials. In her free time (when she finds time for any), she enjoys traveling, learning about foreign languages and cultures, reading, and writing.

We are proud to welcome her aboard the ESLemployment writing staff! We hope that you too will fully enjoy the opportunity of learning and sharing our own experiences with such a well-accomplished persona in our field.

Good luck Carol! We look forward to reading your contributions to the ESL-Lesson-Plan blog.

Happy writing,
