Jared Sell

Degree: TESOL MA

Thesis title: Taking the “Foreign” out of the Foreign Language Classroom Anxiety Scale”.  I investigated the effects that anxiety had on students studying at the ELC.

What you have done since graduation: I have recently accepted a job as an ESL instructor at North Cedar Academy, and international boarding school in northwest Wisconsin.

Future goals/plans: Possibly work toward a PhD as well as work on my skills as a curriculum developer.

Advise for future students: Plan your studies and your research well. Spend an hour every day working on some aspect of your thesis. Learn to enjoy yourself while also working hard. Rely on and support your fellow graduate students. They will be some of the best influences on your academic career. Also, trust your professors and learn to work with and respect them. They are sacrificing their time to help you and their help is essential for your success!
