Self-introduction

My name is Cynthia Haring, and I live in Weeki Wachee, Florida. It's my pleasure to introduce myself today.

I was born in Iowa. That’s in the Midwest in the United States, an agricultural state. I do have some relatives who are farmers. My mother was from a small town in Iowa, and my father was from California. They have four kids, and I’m the oldest. I went to the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls and graduated with degrees in English and ESL with journalism certification.

I taught for many years in the Midwest as well as in Arizona, and most recently in Florida. I’ve been in Florida since 1997. Actually I came here after I got my master’s degree at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Prior to that, I was teaching on an Indian reservation in Parker, Arizona for a few years, which was very exciting, very interesting. I taught people from four tribes: Hopi, Mohave, Chemeheuvi, and Navajo. It was after that I decided to go and get my master’s degree in Language, Reading, and Culture.

As I already mentioned, I got my BA in ESOL and English. I am certified to teach in five areas in the state of Florida. These include social science, English language arts, elementary education, music and of course ESOL. So, if any student wants any instruction in any of those areas, I am fully certified. I have also taught mathematics, science, health, and many different subjects to young people. At the university level, you can see in my resume, that I coached a number of students who passed TOFEL test, as well as professional doctors and dentists at the University of Illinois in Chicago. I helped them try to lose their foreign accents. I actually developed a pronunciation program for that specifically.

I love your country! As you can see, I am wearing my Chinese jacket, which I got when I was there. My brother was teaching in Hong Kong, so we got to come to China. We got to go to Xi’an to see the Terra-Cotta Warriors, which was incredible. Your history is very rich. We also went to Beijing. We stayed in Beijing for a few days, where we went to the Temple of Heaven, the Great Wall, and many other sites. I was able to communicate a little bit. For example, I know “ni hao ma?” and ”xie xie ni.”
