She also holds an M.A.T in TESOL from the School for International Training (SIT), where she focused on inclusive language through a linguistic lens.

Her areas of interest include systemic functional linguistics, corpus linguistics, reflective teaching, language teaching pedagogy, community-engaged learning, and professional development. Stephanie is a regular conference presentation and workshop facilitator, both nationally and internationally. She is an active member of TESOL, MATSOL, and NNETESOL. Currently, she is the material’s editor for the MATSOL Currents bi-annual publication and (starting in November 2016) will be the president-elect for NNETESOL.

Kareema Jean-Baptiste is a 24-year-old educator from Princeton, New Jersey. Kareema received her bachelor’s from Hampshire College in 2015, concentrating on educational policy, Africana Studies, and Black Media. Her Division III was a research paper examining the charter school system in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and its effect on the students of color. While at Hampshire, Kareema took the TESOL course at Hampshire in the summer of 2014. Since graduating from Hampshire Kareema has been a TESOL intern in LaPaz Bolivia, and taught English online through a Shanghai based company. Kareema has experience with applying to English teaching programs such as Fulbright, EPIK, JET, and the North American Language and Culture Assistant Program in Spain.

Having a TESOL certificate changed my life, both personally and professionally! I found TESOL right before I started my Division III project at Hampshire. I still remember emailing my committee and telling them that I was changing all my plans. This took a great leap of faith, but it was completely worth it. My Division III opened my eyes to the world, and my TESOL certificate provided me with job opportunities directly after graduation.
