Chloe Donnelly

Department Head



Chloe completed her MA in Linguistics at San Francisco State, along with a Certificate in the Teaching of Composition. She has also acquired a BA in English Writing Practices from Humboldt State University, and a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language from Trinity College London.


Chloe has been fortunate to work with language in a variety of contexts, from teaching English as a Foreign Language in Italy to leading an undergrad linguistics class at SF State. She adores studying the intersection of language, culture, and identity, and infuses her classes with materials that speak to these topics.
