ESL Faculty and Support Personnel

Paula Gunder

 

 

The LMC ESL faculty and support staff are dedicated professionals with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences.

 

Through our instructional activities and our course materials, we try to respectfully and enthusiastically explore and learn about our students' cultures and the diverse American culture as we work to help our students develop their English language skills and confidence.

 

We all share a love for language and for the opportunities learning a new language can bring to our lives. We strive to pass this love along to our LMC ESL students and to help them realize and take advantage of the many new personal, social, career, and academic opportunities available to them as they improve their English language proficiency.
