Meet the NYS TESOL Member of the Month for March 2017
Kathleen McCann Klaiber
McCann Klaiber is Associate Professor of ESL and English at Genesee
Community College in Batavia, NY. She has taught at the college
since 2010 and was the recipient of the SUNY Chancellor’s Award for
Excellence in Teaching in 2014. Kate is a retired USAF spouse who
has traveled extensively and now lives with her family in LeRoy,
NY. She loves her profession because she gets to interact with
students from all over the world. She received her M.A. in
Applied Linguistics with a TESOL certificate from the University of
Utah in 1997.
NYS TESOL is very important for her because she is the only full-time
faculty member in her field at her small, rural community
college. Conference attendance allows her to interact with
colleagues from all over the state and she always come back filled with
new ideas. Increasingly, membership is important because of
potential changes in our political system. In addition, she has been
able to network with the ROCESOL group of higher education
professionals because of her TESOL affiliation.
