Teri LaliberteTeri Laliberte, MA is IACET's Director of Accreditation and Special Projects. Teri's work with adult learners as a trainer, teacher and mentor spans her 25-year (and still going) career in one capacity or another.  The early part of her teaching career was spent teaching English (ESL) internationally.  After earning a Master’s in Applied Linguistics, she lived in Turkey and Poland teaching at the University level.  Once back in the US she became a teacher trainer with the Great Books Foundation for k12 teachers working with gifted children.  After a brief hiatus to stay home with her three children she returned to ESL as a Director for English as a  second language programs with the University of Cincinnati, Northern Illinois University (with ELS Language Centers) and as a District Director oversaw the programs at many more partner universities.  While partnering with Universities she worked with the language programs to become accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET.)  This process taught her a deep respect for the accreditation process. Moving from the academic world to the association world she developed a train the trainer program and worked to standardize the training for her former employer, The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE,) in addition to developing a global trainer program. Having seen the benefits of accreditation for programs and learners, she believes whole heartedly in the mission of IACET and her work as the Director of Accreditation and Special Projects.   When not sharing her home office with her two greyhounds she can be found either running, swimming or cycling.
