I am an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) instructor from Baltimore, Maryland. Although I have a Master Degree in Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), I have a random job history which includes: civil engineer, archaeologist, barista, caterer for rock stars, and beer.

If you are considering visiting Miami during the holidays, I recommend you to eat at Taco Rico on Mondays for $1 tacos. If you like beer, The Abby is a small bar which serves its own micro-brews and is located just a block from the school. The weather is nice here year-round, so you can swim in the ocean even when it’s winter.
