Share the Wealth with Alicia Trebus: Feeling Limitless in Limited Language Ability
by Mark Chmiel
Alicia Trebus has been working closely with English language learners for the past six years. Within a variety of contexts including university tutoring, a South American homestay, and U.S. Citizenship test prep, she has been mesmerized by the resiliency present particularly in immigrant and refugee populations. Her Share the Wealth will be woven together by the theme of tenacity, represented through vignettes of broken English, a 10-year-old Man of the House, and the frustratingly complex distinction between ‘long E’ and ‘short I.’
Alicia studied English at Maryville University and obtained a Master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language from Webster University. She will begin teaching courses for non-native speakers this Fall at STLCC – Meramec.
