Dr. Marshall began her career as a middle school French teacher in Newton, MA, and then, after teaching English in France for two years, decided to move into the field of TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). She holds a B.A. and M.A. in French from Tufts University and a doctorate in TESOL from Teachers College, Columbia University. Helaine is Professor of Education and Director of Language Education Programs at Long Island University – Hudson, where she teaches courses in TESOL methodology, linguistics, and multicultural education. Helaine began flipping her teacher education courses in Spring 2012 as part of a teaching innovation grant and found the results so positive, that she now flips all of her courses. Her research interests include flipping the online learning environment and culturally responsive teaching for SLIFE (students with limited or interrupted formal education) and other struggling language learners. She includes a chapter on flipped learning in her book Making the Transition: Culturally Responsive Teaching for Struggling Language Learners (U. of Michigan Press, 2013).
