I am so fortunate to work in a profession that I love - I teach. I am able to do this becasue when I was young I learned to read, and write. Gaining command of reading, writing, math and technology is critical to building a successful life wherever you are in the world.
This Summer I plan to spend a month as a volunteer in Ethiopia teaching English, math, technology and other skills to children. This will be a great teaching experience and will enable me to deepen my teaching practice with students who are learning English - as are many of my current students. In addition, I will learn a lot about a part of the world, a people and culture most of us have not seen.
To participate in this program I need to raise the money to cover costs of my housing, food and local transportation as well as the cost of getting there.
I am asking for your help to raise that money. Any donation will make a big difference toward making this trip possible, toward helping me provide help students in Ethiopia build pathways to a good life, a successful life.
