EduGator Nation in Africa

Jessica Funk (MED ’10, Elementary Ed) tells us about her career after graduation.  Jessica joined the Peace Corps shortly after earning her degree from the University of Florida.  She now teaches to children in Mbala, Zambia in Africa for 10 hours a day, focusing on literary instruction.  One challenge she faces is preparing the children in grades 8 and 9 for their upcoming national exams so that they can continue their education in high school.  Jessica is pictured below with some of her students.
