Greetings! My name is Gretchen. I am a graduate student in Applied Linguistics at SIU Carbondale, Illinois. I also teach writing at the Center for English As a Second Language at SIU. I recently moved here from San Diego, California. The weather here is a bit more exciting and unpredicatable. I love that it's so GREEN here. I like to go to the wineries in the area. I'm looking forward to the upcoming change of season and the arrival of hockey season. Go Blues!
