Marlboro's Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) masters program finished its summer intensive last week. Faculty member Suzan Kobashigawa sat down with two fellowship recipients to discuss their experience working with refugees and how it connects to their studies at Marlboro. 

Kate Harris is an English for Refugees Fellow with experience working with refugees in Lebanon. 

Alexandra Rutan is a returning Peace Corp volunteer and has been awarded the Coverdell Fellowship in partnership with the Peace Corps.
