About the Presenter
Dr. Andrea Honigsfeld is a Professor in the Division of Education at Molloy College, Rockville Centre, New York, where I teach doctoral courses related to diversity, social justice and equity.
Before entering the field of teacher education, I was an English-as-a-foreign-language teacher in Hungary, an English-as-a-second-language teacher in New York City, and taught Hungarian at New York University. As a Fulbright Scholar, I lectured in Iceland and I have been presenting at conferences across the United States, Great Britain, Denmark, Sweden, the Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates.

Her recent books, articles and ongoing research are focused on coteaching, teacher collaboration, and ESL strategies.
