Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL)

Lesley was raised in the small town of Nowata, Oklahoma and received her bachelor's degree from the University of Oklahoma in liberal studies, with a minor in chemistry. Lesley is currently pursuing her Master of Arts in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages online at ATU. 

Lesley currently works as an English as a Foreign Language teacher to students in China and the Czech Republic via virtual learning. She chose ATU's TESOL program because of the wide choice of interesting class options and the flexible online delivery option. She is interested in Computer Assisted Language Learning and building online communities between bilingual students.  

Apart from her interest in language learning, Lesley is a member of many book clubs and loves to recommend psychological thrillers and WW2 era historical fiction. She spends the remainder of her time disciplining youth and elementary-aged children through different ministries.
