As a scholar, I am most passionate about the value of multilingualism, specifically equipping international organizations with policies to improve the language acquisition of their personnel, and which don't devalue local languages at the expense of English.

As an instructor, I am most passionate about equipping language professionals to understand the beauty and creativity of linguistic structure, and its relevance to language pedagogy.

I am interested in the sociolinguistics of globalization - primarily the phenomenon of adult language learning and its attendant power and identity issues.   The uses and development of English repertoires in an increasingly mobile, multilingual and digital age fascinate me.   Within globalization, I am especially interested in helping international organizations better equip their employees to acquire the language skills necessary to carry out their goals.  This includes applying second language acquisition theory to language learning in field-based and non-classroom settings.   I have also researched language repertoires and translanguaging in digital social media.

I seek to facilitate students’ discovery of ways to use their knowledge and expertise in order to positively affect populations around them.

I am passionate about working with language teachers to develop curricula and pedagogical practices that promote students’ language acquisition and critical thinking skills.  

As a teacher, I most enjoy classroom discussions that take on a life of their own; that is, ones that unfold in an organic, conversational fashion. In my experience, it is during discussions like these that the greatest amount of new ground is broken.

Patricia first became interested in the field of language education based on her own language learning experience. She found that learning French as a school requirement was not nearly as motivating as learning Italian in an effort to engage with the Italian people and culture. After working as a software trainer in Silicon Valley, Patricia taught English as foreign language in Milan and Rome, Italy. Her love of teaching eventually led her to pursue her master's degree in TESOL here at the Monterey Institute.
