Ms. Christina Bailey joined the International Teachers College (ITC) at Universitas Pelita Harapan in October 2019 as a full-time lecturer. In this capacity, her focus is on enhancing the English curriculum and providing students with help in their writing skills. She is also working on the development of a program to reinforce the English skills of current and incoming students.  In America, she presented on topics relating to English pronunciation and explicit English teaching at the International TESOL Convention.


Prior to coming to ITC, Ms. Chris worked for ELS Language Services in La Verne, California, USA as a full-time instructor for eight years. Her work at this company involved teaching, assessing, and mentoring students in their intensive English studies.  During her time with ELS, she also worked at Kindai University in Osaka, Japan for 5 months as well as at Meiji University in Tokyo, Japan for one month in 2017. Her time in these positions allowed her to experience more cultural diversity and awareness. Before her time at ELS, Ms. Chris worked in the public-school system in California. She worked mostly in elementary schools but did some work in middle and secondary schools as well.



Ms. Chris earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology with a minor in sociology from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa, USA in 1995.  When she moved to California, she obtained a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential and an Education Specialist Credential for Mild/Moderate Disabilities from California Polytechnic University in Pomona, California, USA in 2004 and 2011, respectively. In 2014, she procured her master’s degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California, USA.



Ms. Chris is single and enjoys traveling and exploring new places with friends or on her own. She has spent time in Japan, Taiwan, Korea, China, and Indonesia discovering beautiful places and watching people in their own cultures. She believes that Matthew 28:19-20 are her life calling specifically because God has placed this desire in her.
