English Major with minors in Spanish and Secondary Education class of 2011
Stephanie Crisp, an English major with minors in Secondary Education and Spanish, is one of 16 outstanding seniors from across the university being honored for their achievements during their co-op experiences with a Cooperative Education Award. Stephanie is clearly an outstanding student, entering the final semester of her senior year with a 3.942 GPA. She has taken full advantage of the domestic and international opportunities that Northeastern offers, participating in two Dialogues of Civilization programs to Spain and Argentina, and in three co-op experiences.
After graduation, Stephanie plans to become a teacher. However, Stephanie approached the co-op program as an opportunity to explore various career options. Her first co-op was with Wellington Management, a leading global institutional asset manager, working with the Wellington Foundation. Her second co-op was with the Mathworks, a leading developer of technical computing software for engineers and scientists in their Social Mission program, and her third co-op was working with the Center for STEM Education at NU which has developed a service model for the design and delivery of exemplary K-20 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs.
In addition, Stephanie has volunteered for Sociedad Latina and St. Benedict Parish English program, working with Spanish speaking students, and is currently student teaching at the Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers. She is very proud of the fact that one of the high school seniors she worked with at Sociedad Latina is now a freshman at Northeastern.
As Stephanie pursues her career as a teacher, she brings a wealth of diverse work experience and skills to the field, as well as her academic background both on campus and abroad. Her future students can only benefit from the depth and breadth of her education here at Northeastern, and we have been lucky to have her.
