About Me

I am interested in a wide variety of curricular applications of technology, with a specialization in foreign language education and Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL).  My current research revolves around the teaching of second language acquisition of speaking and pronunciation. I am conducting research on the use of technology that we have developed here at Carleton as a pedagogical intervention in foreign language classes.

I am also the Moodle software administrater and supervise a team of student workers to assist me in support Moodle across campus. I am available to assist anyone on campus with Moodle or to discuss the strategic use of technologies for teaching and learning.  

I am also a JET Programme alum ('96-'99) and can answer basic questions about the JET Programme.

Outside of Carleton, I am president of the Minnesota Kyudo Renmei and co-instructor with my husband, John.  I was also elected the Vice President of the American Kyudo Renmei in 2016. We raise 2 lovely children here in Northfield, and I try to be active in their education.

As a fluent speaker of Japanese, I occaisionally serve as a volunteer interpreter or translator, usually for events involving martial arts.
