Michelle Johnson is a doctoral candidate in Linguistics. Her research is on the texting patterns of bilingual adolescents, and what that can reveal about digital communication as its own language variety, second language acquisition, and academic literacy. She created an interactive infographic illustrating how the languages spoken in NYC are represented along the subway lines for the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate, and is working on a repository for linguistics and language teaching materials at CUNY. She also works in the Second Language Acquisition Lab on developing computer-based assessments and teaching materials. Prior to becoming a Digital Fellow, she taught Linguistics at Lehman College, was a Peace Corps Volunteer in Uganda, and taught Math at Lansing Community College.
