Tilla Alexander


For the past twenty years, Tilla Alexander has worked as an ESL teacher for the Office of Adult and Continuing Education, NYC DOE, first working in Queens and Williamsburg, Brooklyn before moving to the Mid-Manhattan Adult Learning Center in September, 2001.  At Mid-Manhattan, she worked with students enrolled in the ESL Clerical Pre-Vocational class where her students took 6 hours per week of computer class and 9 hours of ESL class.  Although the settings were different, the curriculum was intertwined and integrated.  Tilla was part of the LAC/Harvard Health Literacy Program and was featured in a video along with her students and health professionals at Harlem Hospital.  Her work in the pilot program led her to co-present with the LAC/Harvard Team at the International TESOL Conference in Tampa.  She currently teaches ESL 5/6 at the Mid-Manhattan Adult Learning Center. She also was a recipient of the LAC Literacy Achievement Award in 2007.  In addition, Tilla has been on the NYC Consortium for Adult Basic Education Planning Committee for the past seven years and is currently their webmaster.  Her previous work at NYS TESOL includes being on the Executive Board for three years, first as co-coordinator of SIGs and later as VP of Outreach.  Currently, she is co-chair of ESL Adult and exhibitor liaison for the 2017 conference.  Tilla has also presented workshops in several venues including NYAACE, NYU Literacy Review, the ABE Conference and NYS TESOL Salons.
