Sarah Kegley is the International Teaching Assistant (ITA) program manager in the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). Sarah designs ITA programming, which includes training in teaching skills and cultural awareness for work in the U.S. university classroom. This programming is offered as a service to incoming ITAs in all departments. With a background in TESOL and intercultural communication, Sarah has a wide array of experience in education and international education. She began her teaching career in Atlanta public schools, and after earning her master's degree in Applied Linguistics, she moved to Spain where she worked with both undergraduate and graduate students at Saint Louis University’s Madrid campus. In her most recent role prior to coming to Georgia Tech, she was a senior lecturer in the Department of Applied Linguistics & ESL at Georgia State University (GSU) where she taught graduate credit courses for ITAs including Listening and Speaking for Academic Purposes, and Academic Writing, as well as teacher-training courses. In addition to working with international graduate students, she also taught undergraduate composition and intercultural communication courses at GSU. Sarah’s vast experience in education fosters a multidimensional approach to programming for ITAs that will not only build teaching skills and confidence, but will also foster connections among ITAs, fellow graduate students, and undergraduate students in the processes of teaching and learning.
