I would like to express my thanks to Dr. Grant Eckstein for his positivity and guidance throughout the creation of this textbook, Dr. Matt Baker for providing insights into the world of editing and publishing, and James Hartshorn for teaching me the wonders of curriculum and materials design.
I am deeply grateful to Karina Jackson for welcoming me onto the ELC's materials development team, listening and giving advice as I gained experience teaching writing, and being a role model for me as a TESOL professional. Thank you.
I am also grateful to AnnMarie Saunders and Allison Baker for their feedback and contributions. Many thanks to the ELC faculty, staff, and students who helped review this book.
Lastly, the completion of this textbook would not have been possible without the support of my family and friends. Thank you for your patience and loving encouragement.
