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 🙂
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,
