About us

Alice Savage
Alice.Savage_photoI am a professor of ESOL at Lone Star College-North Harris in Houston, Texas, where I teach a variety of English langauge courses to students from all over the world.  I have also trained preservice teachers for the Certificate in English Language Teaching (CELTA) offered by The University of Cambridge.  In addition to teaching, I am a materials writer and have published ESOL textbooks with Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press and Pearson/Longman. I also participate in the Big Ideas Series published by Wayzgoose Press, and I’ve written several plays for English learners for Alphabet Publishing. I enjoy the intersection of teaching, teacher-training and writing because it allows me to work out the puzzles of turning theory into practice. 
I have a Masters of Art in Education from the School for International Training, and a Bachelor of Art in English from the University of Washington.
