Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m a passionate supporter of global engagement and advocate for education equity. This blog originally began as a way to document my time teaching English in Chile through the Chilean government’s English Opens Doors Program many years ago, after graduating from college and earning a TEFL certification. It’s now a place to share observations and my experiences on the road, both in the U.S. and abroad.

Working in international education for the past seven years has deepened my passion for supporting student engagement in both local and global issues, and increasing diverse students’ access to transformative experiences abroad. I am a strong supporter of local civic engagement, and believe that international experiences are one avenue for helping connect global issues to the local level.

After many years supporting students in study abroad and ESL schools, I am currently a Fellow at a non-profit in Washington, DC, supporting environmental and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) resources for K-12 teachers.

I hold an M.Ed. in Educational Leadership, with a focus in Comparative and International Education from Lehigh University. I am excited to collaborate with others in the field, so feel free to reach out at: andreamichelle06 [at] gmail [dot]com or on Twitter: @Andream_m
