US American expat living in Thailand

- About me: I am returning to a place very near to my heart on the Thai-Burma border, and I hope you will journey with me. After teaching special education two years in rural Louisiana as a part of Teach for America, I made the decision that I needed to return to this part of the world to put into action my passion for justice. Just as when I was a corps member under Teach for America, I will be fervently out to prove that excellent education is not dependent on the best resources or certain socio-economic levels and that my students can achieve on high levels. However, this time I must face some of the deeper, more sobering realities that create refugees, and I hope you all will walk with me and with my students throughout the process. You will have to occasionally forgive my strange sense of humor in the lighter moments, and I promise I will include as many stories as possible, as I encounter them.
