After ten years of teaching English for Academic Purposes in Abu Dhabi, Hanoi, and Astana, Kazakhstan and traveling throughout Asia and Latin America, Janet is pursuing a PhD in English in literary studies. A research focus on counter-hegemonic readings of critical ethnic and diasporic literature of the Americas is emerging from eclectic reading habits. When not studying, she is grateful for the joys of teaching English 100, snorkeling and observing gold dust day geckos.
