Academic English Studies

Deborah Anholt

Codirector, AES

My name is Debbie Anholt, and I have been teaching here at Lewis & Clark for over 30 years. I love coming to work every day because the students are interesting and fun to teach. I understand the life of an international student because when I was young, I studied in different countries. I think travelling to different cultures and learning about different people is very valuable. In my free time, I am with my family. Both of my children are young adults: Eric graduated from Lewis & Clark, and Katy from another university nearby,  so I understand the lives of college students! My husband and I like to go camping in the beautiful mountains of Oregon or at the coast with our kids.
