If you have done work internationally, where and in what capacity?
I have done volunteer teaching in Costa Rica, presented my M.A. research in Finland and Cuba, interpreted for the World Social Forum in Brazil, studied French in Québec, recently adopted a basic school in Jamaica, and carried out my Ph.D. research in Italy.

I am presently back home in Toronto and am untangling the ethnographic intricacies of my field work as I continue the long process of crafting my dissertation.
If you are willing to volunteer, in what area(s):
curriculum development, grant research/writing, internships, mentor teaching, researchers, translation
How did you hear about us and a few words why you want to join EBB:
I initially learned of Teachers Without Borders from one of my professors at the University of Toronto where I am currently studying towards my Ph.D.

One of my areas of focus for the doctorate is 'Comparative, International and Development Education,' so it makes good sense for me to become a member of Teachers Without Borders as a tangible way of extending my scholarly learning to the global community, to putting theory into practice.
I consent to receiving important information including news, publications and invitations to programs and events.
