Mrs. Barbara Underhill, former part-time faculty and program advisor for the School of Education’s TESOL program, retired this year after 17 years of teaching at Cairn University. Initially brought to the University to develop and teach an intensive English as a Second Language (ESL) program for English language learners at Cairn, she has dedicated nearly two decades to developing and overseeing the Teaching English as a Second Language program.
Mrs. Underhill’s heart for international, multilingual learners has been evidenced in many ways. Throughout her time at Cairn, she has continued to serve ESL learners through programs in Trenton, Princeton, and New Brunswick, NJ. Her influence has stretched overseas to Cairn’s graduate campuses in Germany, Hong Kong, and Brazil, as well as missionary service in Slovenia and Poland.
Mrs. Underhill looks forward to having more time to minister alongside her husband, Ken, pastor of Jackson Baptist Church in Jackson, NJ. We are grateful for her contributions to the development of our TESOL program and example of service to the community.
