“Part of what brought me to Drake was the many opportunities to study abroad, particularly in Africa. When I was in Ghana in J-Term 2013, we were given the opportunity to teach classes at four schools in a rural village. We instructed in classrooms with dirt floors and, if we were lucky, a chalkboard. These children were so eager to learn. Yes, I was teaching them, but they taught me much more. Because of my time in Ghana, I've found my calling: to teach abroad. Drake has opened my eyes to a bigger world.”
