Lynette Shaw-Smith started at Arizona State University in August 2015. Because of her experience with ESL and developmental English, she was hired
to teach WAC 107, ENG107, and ENG 108—writing classes for international students. She has also been named to the Barrett Honors Faculty due to her previous work with honors students in her classes. Because she enjoys working with students, she invites them to join her family for American experiences, like dinner at many types of restaurants, bowling, mini golf, and holiday events.
Today she presented an update on the current needs of the school she founded for the children in Jinja, Uganda.
Lynette is currently a member of the Tempe Downtown Rotary Club (former member of the Kyrene Rotary Club)
