About Karrie


I have taught many levels of ESL at Bates Technical College in Tacoma, Washington for 15 years. Before that I worked at several different Washington colleges and also for brief periods in Germany and China.  I earned a TESOL certificate from Western Washington University and a MEd-TESOL from Seattle University.

I post here once a week to review what we learned in class and give you ideas about more practice to improve your English. Remember that learning a new language takes time. Spending time outside of the classroom will help you improve much faster.

    Oh,Hi Ms. Boss,
    Did you get a promotion, right ?
    Sometimes, I wonder why don’t you have your own website to teach English and then I’m really interested in getting it. The layout of website is very clear, simple, and easy to find lessons.
    Pictures were beautiful and charming. And your photo is really nice, gentle with smiling. That’s wonderful. I’m going to learn a lot of lessons from your website. Thanks a lot and Congratulations!

    We started our new books week. We reviewed simple present, present continuous and the modal verb ‘can.’ We described what people are wearing, what they do regularly and what they are doing right now.
