Picture of Michelle Zeman

Brief Biographical Sketch:

Let's see... I was born and raised outside Chicago, and have lived in California since starting grad school in 2007. I like poetry by e.e. cummings, football games on Sunday afternoons, and Trivial Pursuit. My life-long goal is to be fluent in a language besides English, with a particular fondness for ASL. I've been teaching for SPLASH on and off since spring of 2008, so I think my classes are getting pretty good - come check them out!
