Margaret Jo Borland
I have taught English to thousands of students from at least 40 different countries during my long professional career at ELOP and LSU. I am also the ELOP Director. My goal is to help students prepare for academic success at LSU or other colleges and universities. I try to share my love of learning and my joy in the life of the mind with all our ELOP students. The door of my office is always open, and I am happy to see students who often stop by for academic help, advice, or just to chat. I hold an M.A. in English Literature, and I have collaborated with international universities and scholarship consortia in Vietnam, Saudi Arabia, Oman, South Korea, Brazil, Kuwait, China, Haiti, Honduras, and Angola. I am active in LSU international organizations and University committees, serve on Baton Rouge community boards and committees, and am LSU faculty advisor to student associations. My personal mottos, both for life and in teaching are: “Put back more than you take” and “Do good because it is right to do good”. My favorite classes to teach are Reading, especially understanding the novel in English, and Composition. I also teach TOEFL exam preparation. The ELOP faculty and I believe that international students at LSU and ELOP represent the best of all cultures and you, our students, are the future leaders of your countries, of the world. We work very hard to help our students prepare to be leaders with strong academic skills, solid English proficiency, and a sense of confidence to face the future. Let me hear from you at email@example.com.
I teach Spoken English and other classes at ELOP, as well as classes in American History, Culture, and Government. I really enjoy the chance to meet people from all over the world and to introduce them to life here in the US. I never stop learning, and I'm always interested in hearing about your country, your culture, and your language. I've been involved with ELOP since I was in graduate school at LSU, and after teaching English for two years in Karlsruhe, Germany; I'm happy to be back here in Baton Rouge and at ELOP. Send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions at all.
