Camille Embus Perez

Camille has been working at St. John's University since 2011, as both an instructor and administrator for The Language Connection as well as an adjunct professor for the university’s credit ESOL program. Before working at St. John's, she taught in West Africa as an elementary teacher for 2 1/2 years at a diverse school that sparked her passion for working in the ESOL field.  Camille holds a B.S in Elementary Education from The University of Tennessee and an M.S. in TESOL from St. John's University.

She has been a member of NYS TESOL for 2 years now and in these 2 short years she has had many opportunities to grow as a professional. She has been able to stay current on topics in the field, meet and engage other professionals about what she loves (teaching!), and work with other NYS TESOL volunteers through serving as the Student Projects Contest Coordinator for NYS TESOL.  Having the opportunity to volunteer has really connected her to NYS TESOL in a way that is more rewarding than she could have imagined.
