Meet the NYS TESOL Members of the Month
for November 2015
New York City Region
Joye Dawkins lives and works in New York and speaks many languages, She first became involved in TESOL during volunteer humanitarian trips overseas. Acquiring English as a second language is often the key for many people to open the door to a better economic life. She saw this first hand in Haiti with people whose lives had been adversely affected by the 2010 earthquake. Learning English afforded people the opportunity to improve their chances to get jobs with NGO's and to get back on their feet. Joye is currently enrolled in the MA TESOL program at Hunter College. Her long term goal is to use the TESOL skills she acquires to help people in different countries to learn English well and in so doing to be a bridge to helping them acquire better paying jobs.
