Instructor, Intensive English Program

“Teaching in the IEP gives me the opportunity to welcome students from around the world into the OBU community and offer them a place where they feel accepted and loved. I enjoy being able to help and encourage them to meet their goals and am greatly blessed to see those who came through the IEP cross the stage on graduation day.”

"Having been in the field of Education for more than twenty years, it is still incredibly rewarding to observe student’s progress so quickly toward realization of their Language goals-which in turn propels them toward other life goals."

Linda Perkins
Instructor, Intensive English Program

“I am beginning my 6th year as an I.E.P. Instructor at OBU. Prior to OBU I taught 32 years in Texas Public Schools, the last four as a certified E.S.L. Specialist. This experience, plus overseas travel for missions, has equipped me to effectively meet the needs of international students on both an educational and personal level. God blesses me daily through my interaction with my international students and I truly believe small things done in great love change the world.1 Corinthians 13:13.”

Amanda Newsom
Instructor, Intensive English Program

“Working at the IEP is a privilege because I get to know students from all over the world. IEP students are always a pleasure to teach, and I get a chance to learn about their cultures and share in their experiences adapting to life in the U.S. It is also rewarding to help equip students academically for their studies at OBU.”
