IMG_6522My name is John Stanley. I teach English as a Second Language (ESL) for College of Lake County (CLC) in northern Illinois.

I currently teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced ESL, as well as “Introduction to Computers”.

My classes are located at Wauconda High School and Wauconda Area Library in Wauconda, IL.

I have been teaching at CLC since 2012 and I’ve been teaching ESL since 2011. I have also taught for Mundelein High School Adult Education. Before teaching adults, I was an elementary school teacher for six years (grades K–3).

I have a bachelor’s degree in English from George Mason University, a master’s degree in Education from George Mason University, and a Certificate of Graduate Study in Bilingual and ESL Teaching from Northern Illinois University.

In my free time, I like to spend time with my wife, Pamela, and my two children, Keira and Johnny. I also love vegetable gardening, reading, yoga, exercising, and playing guitar.

We have three backyard chickens who entertain us and give us fresh eggs.
