BIOGRAPHY
A Ph.D. graduate in Curriculum and Instruction: Bilingual and Bicultural Education at UT Austin, Monica Vasquez Neshyba has been involved in education for twenty years in various roles, including bilingual (Spanish/English) tutor, elementary teacher, bilingual curriculum coordinator, English as a second language/sheltered instruction strategist and English language learner assessment coordinator for central Texas school districts. She has also served as a program specialist for the Texas Education Agency in the Division of Student Assessment - Department of English Language Learners. In 2010-2012, she taught graduate courses for the online Masters of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program for the University of Southern California.

Dr. Neshyba received her B.A. in Spanish from UT Austin and a M.Ed. in Elementary Education from Texas State University. She has presented at various local, state and national conferences on a variety of topics concerning English learners, including literacy, second language acquisition, gifted and talented education, and cultural and linguistic diversity. Dr. Neshyba's dissertation focused on how a high school mariachi class (offered as a course) can serve as a conduit for students' expression of identity and hopes to continue to research classrooms in various contexts as safe spaces for linguistic and cultural expression.
