MA in Linguistics from the University of Ottawa, Canada Ph.D. from the University of Washington
Meet Chandra Shekar, Ph.D. I am a professor in the Department of Linguistics, at California
State University, Fresno. I teach both undergraduate and graduate courses. Every semester,
I create syllabi, homework assignments, and handouts to ensure my students receive
the best education possible. I evaluate and grade my student’s work, including assignments
and papers, and I also moderate classroom discussions. Additionally, I keep track
of attendance records, grades, and all other necessary paperwork. I take great care
when planning, evaluating, and revising curricula, course content, course materials,
and methods of instruction. My lectures cover topics such as English structure, language
and culture, syntax, and bilingualism.
I hold an MA in Linguistics from the University of Ottawa, Canada, which I earned
in 1986. In 1994, I received my Ph.D. from the University of Washington. When I'm
not working, I love reading books, gardening, listening to music, and spending time
with my family. I also enjoy traveling, writing blogs, and conducting research in
my field of specialization.
