Sharon Leigg


I am a first-year International Education Management major at MIIS, and my language of focus is Japanese. My background is in secondary education, world language study, and creative writing.

Areas of interest

My interests lie in second language acquisition and creative writing as tools for academic resilience and success for at-risk students.

Project description

I am writing a paper with a class syllabus that uses both creative writing (fiction and poetry) and world language study (Japanese) as catalysts to help at-risk students become more academically resilient and successful.
