I’m Jesse Harrington. I was born in California but grew up in Oregon near Newport. I have a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from University of Oregon, a master’s degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from Portland State University, and I’m currently working on another master’s degree at Pacific University in Eugene for teaching elementary school. I have taught English language in Mexico, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and also at Portland State and Portland Community College. My wife teaches middle school social studies, and my step-daughter goes to Portland State.
This was the first school I taught at, in Guanajuato, Mexico, 1998-99. It looks small, but this building was just the entry into a much larger compound.
