Joy Norman

Instructor, Intensive English Program

"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."

Joy Carl

Director, Intensive English Program

“I received my Masters in TESOL in 2005.  My experience teaching English to international students includes serving as an instructor in Intensive English Programs in California, Texas and Tennessee, and teaching English and the Bible to college-age students in South Korea.  I love working with international students, and believe that IEPs are a great way for students to grow in English proficiency and gain valuable preparation for university studies.”
