  1. Hi everyone my name is Susan Watson. I'm about 1/2 way through the AL program @ VCU. I currently teach ESOL for PWCS adult ed program. I've been in adult ed for about 9 years. One unique thing about me is that I've walked on the Great Wall in China. I'm looking forward to our conversations here on the blog.

    1. How neat - walking the Great Wall! Visiting China must have been a fantastic experience! I am looking forward to future conversations here as well and just getting to know more ADLT LT peeps.

  2. Hi Susan,
    Thanks so much for taking the time to create this for us all to stay connected.
