Caroline Melton taught ESL at Rice University in Houston, Texas for five years before returning to her home state of Virginia and joining the ESL team at Speak! Language Center. She began her career as a volunteer, tutoring English students in community programs, non-profit organizations, and even an international market! She holds an B.A. from the University of Virginia in Religious Studies, and an M. Ed from the University of Houston in Curriculum and Instruction- Second Language Education. In 2015, she served on the Board of Directors for TexTESOL IV, a local TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) affiliate. In addition to teaching, Caroline is also a language learner and has studied Spanish for many years. She hopes to continue to practice and improve her own second language skills as she helps English learners improve theirs.
