In a matter of days you will begin a life altering experience abroad and I have the privilege of serving as one of your leaders on this trip alongside Willa Ivory. My name is Tyree Alexander and I couldn’t be more excited to share this upcoming journey with you all.

I am a history teacher at the Urban Assembly School for Applied Math & Science in the South Bronx. There I teach 11th grade U.S. History, 12th grade Government & Economics, and Computer Science. I was born and raised in Queens, NY and currently live in Harlem. I am a true NYer and have connections to all 5 boroughs! I received my Bachelors of Arts in Business Administration & Marketing from Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA and my Masters of Science in Teaching from Fordham University in NYC.  I enjoy trying new things, reading, listening to music, having deep and lengthy conversations, and meeting new people. I am learning to overcome my fear of being in front of cameras and ask that you help me with that on the trip 🙂 IMG_1579

This will be my first trip with Global Glimpse but not my first trip of the summer. I actually just returned from a 2 week trip to Thailand where I got to help care for elephants at an elephant sanctuary! I’ve grown so much as a result of visiting Thailand and I can’t wait to help facilitate and witness your growth on our upcoming trip to Esteli, Nicaragua! We will all return home better because of our trip!

See you all soon,

Tyree Alexander
