Leslie A Pahl

Language Center

B.A.(Political Science and German), M.A. and Ph.D. (German literature specializing in the Weimar period): University of California, Berkeley

Ms. Pahl has taught German at CCSF from 1991-2003 and 2013-2014. In 2001 she began non-instructional work in the Language Center, where she provides student services, assisting students and instructors in using language-learning technology and various multi-media resources.

Blogs? Yes! Ms. Pahl keeps three blogs updated for the German Language Program (http://ccsfdeutschnaklar.blogspot.com/), for the Foreign Language Department (http://ccsflanguagecenter.blogspot.com/) and for the Language Center (http://languagecenterccsf.blogspot.com/).

Since German is perceived as a "difficult to learn" language (what with 4 declension cases, primary and secondary adjective endings, and, um Himmels willen!, 10-syllable compound words), Ms. Pahl has evolved her teaching philosophy to include some salesmanship, much encouragement ("If can learn German, you can too!") and a class-by-class refutation of T.L. Peacock's quote that "Life is too short to learn German." In the Language Center, Ms. Pahl is able to extend her encouragement and support to a wider group of students in their quest to learn any one (or more!) of the credit languages taught at CCSF.

Ms. Pahl served as committee chair of the International Education Advisory Committee from 2005-2009.

When she is not working in the Language Center, Ms. Pahl keeps up with political events and commentary (she is the proud owner of a Political Junkie t-shirt, which she won in a contest), listens to NPR, and plans at least one new meal per week taken from her extensive cookbook and recipe collection.

B.A., M.S., San Francisco State University

Professor Loo has taught at CCSF since 1992.

Professor Loo "wants students to feel that I am supportive of their goals and dreams of education. Being educated about the resources available at CCSF is very important - that is why I got actively involved with the all-day .5 unit new student orientations. Students should feel that they have some friendly faces and contacts on campus. I encourage all students to take their time at CCSF to learn about themselves and other students in our diverse student population."

TESOL certificate University of California, Berkeley ext.





Instructor Stewart has taught at CCSF since 1999. She has taught in the classroom, through telecourse and online. Currently she teaches College Success (LERN 50) online and Successful online Learning (LERN 55), a course to help new or previously unsuccessful online learners. For more information about these courses, visit her instructor website:

https://sites.google.com/a/mail.ccsf.edu/elizabeth-stewart/

Instructor Stewart also implemented the Mobile Learning Assistance Center through the Learning Assistance Department. This enables her to take online learning and tutoring to incarcerated youth in the San Francisco Juvenile Justice System and later refer them to CCSF's 2nd Chance Program when possible.

Instructor Stewart states: "my reason for teaching online is so that I can reach students who may otherwise be unable to attend college or who do not have time to come to campus for all their classes. This includes a range of students such as those with demanding family and work commitments and those who are institutionalized."

Her highest goal is to serve her students and to address their needs - mental, emotional and spiritual. She identifies with her students who struggle to juggle work, family and other compelling issues with getting an education, as she has. She also enjoys sharing her love of learning and encourages students to overcome obstacles which hinder their success.

Other hats Instructor Stewart wears include hosting and tutoring international students. She has been an international home-stay host for over twenty years. She loves reading multicultural literature and traveling, when she can, especially to the U.K. and The Gambia in West Africa where she has friends and family. She also enjoys writing and intellectual inquiry. She is currently exploring the ongoing discussion and debate about the connection between quantum physics and consciousness.
