Lisa Rost Lewis
Hudsion Valley Region
Lisa has a BA in Language and Literature from the University
of Michigan and an MA in TESOL from Eastern Michigan University. She has
enjoyed teaching ELL students at SUNY New Paltz’s Haggerty English Language
Program for more than 20 years as both a full-time faculty member and an
adjunct. She additionally provided teacher training in SUNY New Paltz’s Masters
in TESOL program for several years, and continues to work with international
teachers in summer pedagogical workshops. Previously, she worked with ELLs at
various schools in Michigan and in Japan.
Over the years NYS TESOL has offered Lisa important
opportunities to connect with other ESL professionals and be inspired. Interacting
with teachers from other programs and interest sections has opened her eyes to
the vast talent and dedication in our field. The ideas and techniques that are shared
at the conferences always motivate her.
She also appreciates the fact that creating a poster or presentation
for a conference helps her look at her own teaching in new ways. Co-presenting
with other educators has especially given her new perspectives on how to teach.
And she’s happy to know that the best part of collaborating in our professional
organization is that the people who benefit the most are our students.
Check out our wonderful annual awards and nominate a colleague this year !
