Christina Crawford will be graduating in May 2021 with her MA TESOL + Thesis degree and graduate certificate in Instructional Systems Development. Christina works for the Department of Social Services at the Center for Family Success in Baltimore County as the Adult Education Instructor and Coordinator of the ESOL and Employment Readiness program. From 2014-2016 she taught English under the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant program in Austria and continued teaching in higher education and K-8 until relocating to the US in 2020. In the world of TESOL, she is interested in program development, teacher training, and educational policy and equity.
Rida Neuhoff is at the tail end of her MA TESOL degree. As someone who desires to experience many different opportunities in her TESOL career, she has taken the degree path that will allow for a wide range of options, thus, in addition to the thesis, she is finishing up her internship for the P-12 certification. With only 3 classes to finish after this semester, Rida is hoping to start teaching in the public school in the fall of 2021 as a conditional hire while she finishes her degree. She hopes to eventually work with adult language learners, either domestically or abroad. Rida has plans to eventually pursue her Ph.D. and work at a university, training future English teachers.
