Ed.M. Candidate '16, International Education Policy, Harvard Graduate School of Education

I am currently enrolled in Harvard Graduate School of Education's M.Ed in International Education Policy program. After teaching high school social studies in rural North Carolina, I shifted my focus in education to an international realm and developed teach training material in Haiti. Now, I seek to influence international education as a means to preserve minority cultures.
