Priscilla Chen Faucette (Priscilla) has been involved in international education as a student or educator for more than 20 years. After spending a life-changing year in college as an exchange student in France, she subsequently graduated with a BA in French, and then moved to Japan (where she forgot all of her French, but became quite proficient in Japanese). In Japan, she taught English to college students and worked as an in-house business English teacher and program coordinator. Priscilla later earned an MA in ESL and Graduate Certificate in Conflict Resolution, both from UH Mānoa. She is currently the Associate Director of the English Language Institute (ELI), serves as Job Officer in the SLS department, and also as an Advisor in the Undergraduate Program. In addition to her regularly job duties, Priscilla has been involved in a number of other projects, including working on an annotated bibliography for English language teachers, http://exchanges.state.gov/englishteaching/resources-et/bibliography.html. She has also taught ELI courses in Vietnam, online teacher-training courses for EFL teachers in Korea, and SLS 303 (Second Language Teaching) for local DOE teachers. Priscilla is also an active Board member of the local chapters of NAFSA and HITESOL.

Originally from Georgia, Priscilla loves Hawaiʻi and also enjoys travelling and learning about new languages and cultures. In her personal life, Priscilla tries to use her second language “expertise” to figure out what her husband in saying in Mandarin to their bilingual son.
