Biography


Jeanna Ojeda, Ph. D., Linguistics, University of Florida in Gainesville
Associate Professor of ESL for Academic Purposes
Tarpon Springs Campus - St. Petersburg College
My blog: jeannaojeda.wordpress.com/hello/about/
 
"Here at St. Petersburg College, Tarpon Springs Campus, I dedicate myself and my expertise fully to my English Language Learners."

First and foremost, my mission is to engage English Language Learners (ELLs) while developing their strategies, skills, and proficiencies in pronunciation (accent reduction), academic English reading, writing, grammar, vocabulary, listening, and speaking - in order to yield more meaningful communications. To this end, I apply my profound love for the English language and 22+ years of teaching college and university ESL for Academic Purposes (EAP) courses, primarily at St. Petersburg College. Maintaining a classroom learning environment that is caring, cooperative, and student-focused, I inspire and lead students to be active learners. This maximizes their English-learning gains.

Secondarily and of equal import, I encourage students to become professionally-developed and better prepared for the work force or for earning a certificate or degree, according to their goals. This, plus their ever-expanding English-language proficiency, enables connections with and assimilation into community, educational, and workplace settings - resulting in lifelong benefits. In turn, they can develop and expand their professional network, their organizational and leadership skills, and their know-how, for greater success potential.

As a complement to the aforementioned, and because it is deeply rewarding and enjoyable to us all, my students and I also spend out-of-class time together -- reading aloud for pleasure, conversing about realities and dreams, and participating in varied extracurricular activities, as our schedules permit.
