Which countries or US states have you been to?

Italy, England, Mexico, all of the Hawaiian Islands, even the little ones...

Have you ever participated on a volunteer-based trip before? If so, where and what did you work on?

I had the opportunity to travel to the dessert in CA to teach creative writing to chronic and terminally ill children at one of 'Paul Newman's Hole In the Wall Summer Camps'. Being a part of Paul Newman's camp was pretty much the coolest thing I'd ever done, and I was so honored when they asked me to come back to teach again the following summer.

What would you most like to get out of being part of this meet up group?

Everything, I know very little about this topic...


I'm a writer, not a teacher, but I'd like to learn more about the qualifications needed to teach abroad. For four years I mentored students in creative writing in LA public schools after learning CA had cut funding for all art programs in grades K-5.
