Foreign Language Education


Elizabeth Goulette received her Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo in Foreign and Second Language Education. Prior to coming to GSU, Dr. Goulette taught Spanish in diverse educational contexts (urban and suburban), at various levels (middle school and high school). Since she arrived at Georgia State University in 2014, Dr. Goulette has taught many classes in Spanish and Foreign Language Education. She also supervises teacher candidates during their field experience courses (practicum and student teaching).  Her interdisciplinary research has three complementary foci: (1) heritage language education, (2) teacher training to meet the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse learners, and (3) the high stakes, performance-based teacher assessment called edTPA.
