I feel it is vital to ensure that the classroom allows formation of a community that is supportive, respectful and non-threatening, so that growth, both personal and intellectual, can occur."

Professor Lindeboom has been teaching at CCSF since 1978.

He says that we teach languages backwards---listening before speaking. His teaching goal is to change that. To that end, he has developed an innovative, interactive, speaking method that stresses speaking over listening. He has formalized this method in his book, "People Talk". He says that "People Talk" is the most important book to emerge in education in the past 177 years because it models how we can displace passive learning with active learning so as not to teach backwards. Teaching backwards means we teach to memory and not to thinking. That is the single, biggest problem in education and something that needs to be changed. For further information regarding Professor Lindeboom's method, see montagemethod.com.

Professor Lindeboom has written and published: Job Lines #1; Job Lines #2; and People Talk.

His enjoys reading, writing, seeing films, traveling abroad, developing teaching materials, and coaching baseball.

Ms. Martin been a member of the CCSF faculty since 1982.

Ms. Martin states: "I love to teach ESL students because they're highly motivated, and so am I! Because ESL is a skill area, I plan lessons in which students practice the language in a number of ways and get detailed feedback. In more than forty years of teaching and doing teacher training here and on other continents--Tonga in Oceana, Spain in Europe, Algeria in Africa, and Japan in Asia--I've selected and developed lessons to assess and develop students' English-language skills in a way that's relevant to their college courses, future careers, and lives as informed and active citizens with a global perspective."

For several years Ms. Martin was Director of the Fund for Instructional improvement incorporating Diego Rivera's Mural of Pan American Unity into the Curriculum, and a member of the Credit Curriculum Committee, and the Personnel Committee. She helped create course outlines for both credit and non-credit classes. Most recently she has been a member of the ESL Scholarship Committee and the Reflective Teaching Workshop and has collaborated with KQED to create online lessons on campus sustainability.

In addition to writing new words to familiar tunes to help students learn English, she likes to write fiction - short stories, novels, poems, and plays. She also makes French and Spanish practice with friends a part of her daily life.

English as a Second Language (ESL) Department

Ms. Smith has been teaching at CCSF since 1984. She has often served on the ESL Credit curriculum committee, and had written curriculum for both the credit and non-credit divisions of the ESL department. She also participates in inter-disciplinary activities, training, and committees.

She states that "Community Colleges are the heart of education in the United States and it is the students who make the college a dynamic arena for education. I understand that my ESL students are not majoring in English. They need English to take classes in their fields of study. Writing skills are learned by writing. Students need to be curious, inquisitive and open. It is the job of the instructor to arouse curiosity, model inquisitiveness, and provide a learning environment where students feel respected, inspired and encouraged. ESL students need explicit instruction in grammar. Grammar does not 'come along'. I teach my students how to be their own best editors."

Ms. Smith helped implement district-wide white paper recycling in the late 1980's and worked on a student/faculty/administrator district committee to establish an environmental policy for CCSF. She worked with Joy Durighello to plant oak trees on a northern slope of CCSF's campus. Other activities include being an S.F. Schools Volunteer and Community Organizer. As a community organizer, she has coordinated w/Friends of the Urban Forest to plant 200 street trees, which entailed recruiting homeowners, schools, businesses and churches, organized a community fair at Palega Playground and coordinated volunteers drawn from E.R. Taylor Elementary school, S.F. Recreation and Park, and the neighborhood to provide Spanish and Chinese translation, established and worked with Friends of Portola to advocate for the renovation of the Palega children’s playground, organized and coordinated a collaboration between SF Rec and Park and E.R. Taylor Elementary School for an Arbor Day tree planting and celebration, secured a grant for a public bulletin board for Palega playground, organized a Career Fair event at E.R. Taylor Elementary School as part of a College Bound program where over a dozen working professionals, including a clothing designer, a stagecraft designer and play director, a retired U.S. Airforce pilot, a fine artist, a doctor, and a photographer met with students and their families, organized 2 community Safety Fests and coordinated volunteers, and was the grant writer and project manager for the Alemany Island Beautification Project (the installation of a 50' mural on a freeway pillar, the installation of a garden at the foot of the mural, and the installation of 48 art panels along Alemany Boulevard and San Bruno Avenue).

She is also a published fiction writer, whose works include: "Someone in the Neighborhood," Ms. Magazine, Aug 1986; "Prima Donna", Other Voices, vol. 2, #6/7, F'87; "At Birth", Fiction, vol. 9, #3, F'90; "Collect Calls", Fiction, vol. 11, #1, S'92; "Our Last Flight", Painted Hills, #4, F '91; "On the Alameda", Seventeen, September '92; "Born Again", Painted Hills, #5, W '92; "Imposters", Painted Hills, #9, S'93; "Devil's Slide", Sequoia, vol. 34/35, F'93; "Safe", Bamboo Ridge, #69, S'96; and "Dryspell," Bamboo Ridge, #73, S '98.

Ms. Smith loves the out of doors and spends her free time hiking, reading, playing ping-pong, and puttering around the house.

Mr. Trego has been a member of the CCSF faculty since 1991.

Mr. Trego states, "My goal is to give students the skills and confidence they need to function at work and in their communities. I push students to take an active role in their learning and to use English to express themselves and find out about others. My students work on developing good study skills and experiment with different ways to reinforce their learning."

I frequently host student teachers from the SFSU MA-TEFL program. My conference presentations have dealt in particular with teaching grammar and listening. I have chaired the ESL Noncredit Curriculum Committee, co-chaired the ESL Personnel Committee, and participated in Reflective Teaching groups, the SCANS project, and the Academic Senate.

I have authored a grammar book called The Present Perfect Perfected.

Ana Wu, a Taiwanese Brazilian born in Bahia, has been teaching at City College of San Francisco since 2001.

As a non-native speaker of English who came to the USA with a bachelor's degree in Chemistry to get a master's degree in TESOL, she tries to show her students their strengths and the richness they carry from growing in multilingual communities, by promoting language learning from drawing on their backgrounds. She sincerely hopes that one day, they will end up teaching at CCSF or in any community college with a large diverse population.

As an active member of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), she has given presentations and written articles on using technology in the classroom, developing more appropriate strategies for generation 1.5 writers, and non-native English speaking educatorsÆ issues.

Besides teaching, Ms. Wu enjoys being a certified IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) - a tax trained community volunteer during the months of February-April, helping families who speak Spanish, Portuguese, Mandarin and Japanese.

She is an active member of TESOL, having created two websites (http://nnest.asu.edu and http://www.ccsf.edu/eslcall) and a blog (http://nnest.asu.edu/blog/).

One of her hobbies is choir singing, with three semesters at the San Francisco State University Chamber Choir, conducted by Joshua Habermann. She was a chorist of the CoralUSP (Universidade de São Paulo), performing various "modinhas brasileiras" and cantatas, including Carmina Burana with the Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo.
