Hi there! Welcome to my personal website!!
If you are looking for teaching materials hosted on Share-Ling, please send an email to mjohnson2 at gc dot cuny dot edu for access.
Now, back to introductions. I am a fourth year PhD student at the City University of New York – Graduate Center, my research is focused on discourse on digital devices. Right now, I am looking at how Spanish-English bilinguals in the NYC area utilize both languages on twitter. My second (but not secondary) project is to make a map illustrating the relationship between language and the subway lines. I am in the Linguistics Department and doing a certificate in Integrated Technology and Pedagogy. I teach Linguistics Courses at Lehman College in the Bronx, a practicum on Teaching across CUNY and work in the Second Language Acquisition Lab and New Media Lab at the Graduate Center.
Before coming to graduate school, I was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Uganda, and before that, worked in the TRiO Program at Lansing Community College (I also worked in Tutoring Services – that’s me on the left, 15 years ago, tutoring Math.)
I am also interested in how Long Term English Language Learners use interactive digital technologies (a.k.a. Web 2.0). More on that here.
