Professor Debbie Kemp-Jackson is entering her 25th year of teaching English as a Second Language (ESL) at Union County College. She started at the college as an adjunct in 1994, and over the years, while the students have changed, she believes that two things about them have not: their desire to learn English so they can improve their lives in the United States, and their determination to do so. Professor Kemp-Jackson is proud of having been able to help many students along this journey towards improving their English and achieving their goals at the college. In addition, she is interested in using technology to help ESL students maximize their learning capabilities outside of the classroom. Prof. Kemp-Jackson has a B.A in French and a M. Ed in Language Education (TESOL) from Rutgers University and a Masters of Arts in Educational Technology from New Jersey City University.
Union County College has a remarkable history as New Jersey’s first community college. We are known for excellence among regional colleges and universities.
