Amy Small joined the EMS faculty in 2016, but has worked in international education for over 30 years, teaching English for academic purposes as well as professional English. After finishing a B.A. in History, she turned her keen interest in language into an M.A. in Teaching English as a Second Language (UCLA). Always passionate about the Spanish language, she moved to Spain, where she worked at Universidad Europea for over 15 years, teaching English to both undergraduates and faculty. She has also taught international students at UCLA and UCSB Extension and worked in professional translation and interpreting of Spanish/English. Her areas of interest include communicative grammar instruction, materials development for the multilingual classroom, and lifelong learning practices.
