The Author

My name is Janet Castrejon. I'm a language teacher who has taught adult education ESL (English as a Second Language) for most of my career. When I lived in Puerto Rico, I created a website called with English lessons for Spanish-speakers. I created it primarily for my English students but I imagined that others on the web would enjoy it. My website spread by word of mouth and soon it was getting thousands of visitors a day. Later, I decided to branch out and create other sites. I love teaching but I also enjoy the creativity of creating educational websites.

As far as my credentials, I have a bachelor's degree from the in Spanish education and a minor in teaching English as a second language. I also have a master’s degree in education from (CalPoly) in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Educational Technology. I hold a California teaching credential (in Spanish education and bilingual education) and an authorization in Computer Concepts and Applications. I also have a (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) which I obtained from the University of California in Santa Barbara.
