Cameron Arnold

With a background that encompasses teaching in Italy and Thailand, Cameron comes to the School of Convergence with a background in English as a second language and linguistics, as well as non-profit management experience. She earned her MA in linguistics at New York University and a BA in the history of art and Italian studies from the College of William and Mary. In addition, she has certificates in non-profit management, English language teaching and is a qualified Italian to English translator. She was selected as an English Language Fellow by the US Department of State in 2009.

Prior to joining the School of Convergence, Cameron worked as a teacher trainer and English language and curriculum consultant in north India for one year. She moved to Asia in 2007 when she took up a position as an English teacher at an international school in Thailand, returning to the classroom after a hiatus of 10 years. Her academic experience includes teaching English and communication skills to students of all ages, from seven to seventy, from a range of backgrounds and cultures. She currently teaches online courses in socio-linguistics with a US-based university as well.

Cameron’s experience also includes non-profit management, program design and fundraising in New York City where she worked for organizations such as the International Center of Photography and Henry Street Settlement, developing and managing programs aimed at immigrant and underserved communities. Languages and communication, and the connections between language and society, have held a life-long fascination for her. Language acquisition, English language education and the evolving role of English as a global language are her primary areas of interest.
