Dr. Kristen Lindahl is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Bicultural-Bilingual Studies, College of Education and Human Development at the University of Texas at San Antonio.  She earned a Ph.D. in Linguistics with a specialization in Second Language Teacher Education from the University of Utah in 2013 after completing MA coursework in K-12 TESOL/Bilingual Ed (2007), a TESOL Certificate (2006), and a BA in Spanish (2000).  Dr. Lindahl began her career as a public high school ESL and Bilingual Educator, which motivated her interest in researching degrees of language awareness possessed by L2 teachers in multiple contexts. Her additional research foci include content-area L2 literacy, leadership in English education, language revitalization, and English as a foreign language (EFL) education in South America (Ecuador and Perú).  She has published and presented at the state, national, and international level, with representative articles recently appearing in the International Journal of Immersion and Content-Based Education and Middle School Journal, among other peer-reviewed volumes and invited chapters.
