Mr. Gerson Correa


My name is Gerson Correa, ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher for Halifax County Schools, where I provide language support and ESL services to English Learners from all the schools in the district. I came from my native Colombia to North Carolina as a second term exchange teacher through the Visiting International Faculty Program. This is my twelfth year with Halifax County Schools where I have been a high school Spanish teacher and now the ESL teacher.

I am an active member of the North Carolina EL Teacher Network and the TESOL (Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages) organization --the world's largest professional organization for teachers of English as a second or foreign language.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Modern Languages from University of Pamplona, a Specialist Degree in ESL/EFL from Industrial University in Colombia and a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Virginia Commonwealth University.
