As an English Teaching Assistant in Colombia, Casey will spend her hours outside of instruction with the objective of understanding the local people’s culture, language, and interests. She will strengthen this connection with the community by hosting an after-school club, such as a culinary club or an English conversational club, to further cultivate understanding between our intersection of languages and culture.
