Amy Joy Lashmet

Amy Joy graduated from UC Santa Barbara with a degree in Spanish Linguistics and a minor in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). She then earned her master's degree in TESOL from Columbia University in New York City. While in New York, she taught adult English language learners from over 50 countries, allowing her to work with students from a wide variety of language backgrounds and levels of English proficiency. Returning to her alma mater, she now teaches academic English to international students at UCSB, where she has also conducted research on the experiences of international students writing at the university level. Amy Joy is also interested in using technology and social media for language teaching and has thus began various social media channels with educational content for English language learners.
