She is also helping write the English curriculum for English level 1 and 2, so that it has a consistent scope and sequence and connects to the Common Core State Standards.

Abby was awarded the 2012 Compass Award which recognizes nine outstanding seniors who during their time on campus, have demonstrated a commitment to the following set of core values: leadership skill, volunteerism, academic integrity, and commitment to Northeastern.  Also in 2012 Abby won the Outstanding Co-Op Education Award due to her amazing accomplishments during her Co-Op assignment. Every year shortly before commencement, Northeastern University recognizes the accomplishments of a number of its seniors who have had outstanding co-op experiences while at the University.

Abby successfully completed three co-ops (and worked for Teach For America for after graduation).
