Karen Best

I am twice a UW-Madison grad, receiving both a BA in English Literature and an MA in Applied English Linguistics from the English department. I have taught English to nearly all age groups, in many different contexts including non-profits, ESL language institutes, and universities. I started my career in South Korea, first in a public school and later at Korea University and have been at UW-Madison since 2007. My work centers around the teaching of writing and oral skills, and reflective teaching practices. I also currently serve as the ESL Liaison to the Writing Center.
