Fellow Profile: Brianna Tuscani
English Teacher, Jordan High School
Though our circumstances and cultures vary greatly across the world's classrooms, good practice affirms an individual's humanity--whether that be with a teacher or a student. Traveling to Nepal, an opportunity sponsored through Duke TeachHouse, equipped me with greater global context for understanding education systems around the globe. This collaboration with Teach for Nepal demonstrated the great capacity for collaboration amongst educators and other community stakeholders from political offices to the caretakers of our little ones to affect more tangible change.
