Before joining the ELI faculty, Jason taught basic and
intermediate Spanish for Central Michigan University and Michigan State
University. Jason also taught Portuguese- and Spanish-language courses while
completing graduate coursework at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Before
coming to Central, Jason taught courses in Spanish and English in Japan where
he fell in love with Japanese gastronomy.
In addition to teaching EAP courses
in the ELI, Jason teaches online Spanish-language courses. Jason really enjoys
teaching language and he especially loves working with international students
in the ELI because he really feels like he is making a difference in his
students’ lives. When Jason isn't teaching or taking graduate courses, he
spends most of his time in the kitchen.
