Campus Representative, Traci Henry

As a Peace Corps volunteer, Traci lived in a rural cowboy town in the mountains of Nicaragua. She served as a TEFL Teacher Trainer and co-taught with 3 Nicaraguan teachers in the local High Schools. Traci also led a women’s empowerment group, taught an art group for elementary-aged students, helped paint murals around town, and taught advanced English classes on the weekends.
