Melissa Vervinck

Central Michigan University
Doctoral Candidate
Working with international students and educators is a passion. I stay connected with people from around the globe through social media and enjoy learning how to improve what I do in the classroom while also providing support for others by sharing my own successes and failures. My doctoral research focuses on Twitter and its use for Professional and Personal Development (PD). My long term goal is to develop online programming to support English Learners of all ages so that their English skills do not hinder their ability to study in the USA in higher education.
