Carol Lemmons - Teaching Assistant

I grew up in the Kansas City area and lived most of my adult life in Topeka and Manhattan.  My husband and I have 5 grown children and 6 grandchildren (so far!).  I taught my children at home for 19 years ('homeschooling').  I also worked part-time as a nurse for many years in various settings.  In 2005, my husband, 2 youngest children, and I moved to Hungary in eastern Europe.  We all studied Hungarian for several years.  While there, I taught English as a Second Language (ESL) in community classes to all ages of adults.  I loved living and teaching there so much!  When we moved back to Manhattan, I realized I needed a change from nursing as a career.  I am currently pursuing a master's degree in Teaching English as a Foreign Language here at KSU.  As well, I am a graduate teaching assistant in our ELP department.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with our family.  I also like to read, walk, and sew baby quilts for my grandchildren.  Having lived overseas, I can identify with those who also experience similar joys and challenges.  I feel very much at home among internationals and enjoy getting to know and assist you to the best of my ability.
