About the Author
Jessica graduated with a Master of Arts in Teaching English as a Second Language (MA-TESL) from Northern Arizona University (NAU), located in Flagstaff, Arizona. Currently, Jessica teaches in the Foundation English Program at Qatar University in Doha, Qatar.
Ms. Davis has had hands-on training in theoretical aspects related to language learning, pedagogy, assessment, and CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning). Her coursework and teaching experiences provided her with valuable insights in teaching and developing materials for academic English instruction.
Ms. Davis' experience teaching an ESL Drama course in the Fall of 2008 was the inspiration for this website. After realizing that her two passions, drama and teaching ESL, could coexist, Ms. Davis began developing her knowledge and experience of teaching ESL through drama. The product of a Curriculum Development course is now the section of this website entitled "Bringing it All Together". The experience and knowledge gained from a graduate course in Drama in ESL teaching at Southern New Hampshire University, taught by Dr. Gary Carkin, is also incorporated into this site. One such addition is on the Process Drama page--see videos of a Process Drama lesson she and her classmates planned and implemented.
She plans on further developing this interest, and welcomes suggestions or comments. Visit the Guestbook to give your suggestions.
