Welcome

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.

Photo on 3-13-14 at 10.56 AM I am a PhD Candidate at the City University of New York – Graduate Center, researching how emergent bilingual adolescents use digital tools for communication and what that can tell us about second language acquisition. I recently finished a project looking at code-switching as a literacy practice on emergent media such as 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 Lingustics 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 CollegeĀ  (I also worked in Tutoring Services – that’s me on the left, 15 years ago, tutoring Math.)
