About the Instructor: Elizebett Rocha Bento Eslinger

Hi! Olá! I’m Elizebett. (uh-LEEZ-uh-BEHT) 

In addition to being an instructor, I am a mom, author, baker, and language enthusiast. My educational background includes:

  • Master of Public Administration – Nonprofit Management, Portland State University
  • Certificate – Teaching English as a Second/Foreign Language (TESL/TEFL), Concordia
  • Bachelor of Arts – English and Political Science, University of Idaho
  • Associate of Arts – Political Science, College of Southern Idaho

My teaching style, creative projects, and career have been influenced by my lived experiences, including being a first-generation American (and first-generation high school and college graduate) born to immigrants from the Azores. I’m delighted to bring my 20+ years of experience as an educator, leader, language learner, writer, and baker to PCC classrooms!
