Teach With Africa develops K-12 educators in South Africa and Zambia, in pursuit of a mission to create cross-cultural dialogue and transformation for students in those countries (and ultimately, across sub-Saharan Africa). The chance to be part of this team brings together the time I’ve spent working on issues in education and equity in the United States, an opportunity to get smart in a brand new arena (I’ve never deeply studied anything in or about Africa), and great motivation to accomplish a separate goal to visit Africa – I’m proud and excited to contribute to the work.
