About Me

My name is Andrea Sterzuk. I’m a teacher, teacher educator, and educational researcher. I speak/write English, French and Spanish and I’m learning Plains Cree. I have a Bachelor of French Education from the University of Regina, an MA in Second Language Education from McGill University, and a PhD in Second Language Education with a specialization in Language Acquisition from McGill University. Roy Lyster was my supervisor. My previous experiences include teaching, teacher education, and educational research in Mexico, Malawi, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Québec, and Saskatchewan, where I now live.

I am an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Regina where I teach graduate and undergraduate courses and explore my research interests in language variation; print literacy development; language acquisition; second language pedagogy;  multiliteracies; language policy; language ideologies; identity and power; and education in postcolonial contexts.

I’ve also held a number of academic leadership roles: Acting Associate Dean of Research and Graduate Programs in the Faculty of Education (2015-2017), Acting Dean of the Faculty of Education (2017/2018), and Vice-president (2014-2016) and President (2016-2018) of the Canadian Assocation of Applied Linguistics/Association canadienne de linguistique appliquée.
