Betsy R. Rymes




Dr. Rymes’s career began in Los Angeles, where she taught junior high school and adult English language learners for three years. She became passionate about her experiences with language and culture as a classroom teacher, and decided to pursue a master’s degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) and a doctoral degree in Applied Linguistics, both from UCLA. From 1998 to 2007, Dr. Rymes was a professor in the University of Georgia’s Department of Language and Literacy Education, and also held a secondary appointment in the Linguistics division. In 2002, she founded the TELL (Teachers for English Language Learners) program, a five-year project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, designed to bring bilingual community members into the teaching profession.

Dr. Rymes’s university teaching focuses on integrating discourse analysis and concepts from linguistic anthropology with a study of the conditions of multilingualism in school contexts.
