Granny Rose’s Teaching Adventures in Chuuk, FSM
Now “Granny Rose” could do what she had always wanted to do, immerse herself in another culture. I could finally utilize the dual teaching certificates I have accumulated over the years and renewed in 2014. I am ready, willing, and able to go where the door opens. After applying for a volunteer teaching position with WorldTeach and a few changes along the way, I was sent in August 2015 to teach in Weno, Chuuk. Chuuk is a tropical island in the Caroline Islands with unique and challenging issues.
This is an experience that is going to change you in ways you didn't know possible.
Where We Teach
