Travel: Education Ambassador

I have been in education for the past 9 years. The last seven years I have taught a combination of World History, AP European History and Economics, and more recently I have fulfilled a new role as a supervisor to our Flex Program, a new traditional/online hybrid model.


Since the beginning of my career as an educator, I have been leading groups abroad with Education First (EF) Tour Company. Through EF I have traveled with students to three continents, with multiple trips to Europe. I have also traveled on training tours, both as a participant and a presenter to China, Belize, Rome, Barcelona and Paris. Independently of EF, I have traveled to Australia, New Zealand, East Africa, Western Europe, Southeast Asia, and Scandinavia.


I believe traveling is essential in our globalized economy and passionately try to instill this idea in my classroom, as well as the many classrooms I present in. I have been helping EF as a Global Education Ambassador (GEA) for the last four years by: presenting in front of teachers, presenting in front of classrooms and presenting in front of EF staff.
