Hi Global Glimpsers and families! My name is Allison (Allie) Hussenet and I’m one of your Global Glimpse Leaders (GGLs). I’m really looking forward to meeting all of you in person as we travel to Riobamba!

This will be my first Global Glimpse trip, but I have many years of experience traveling with students. I’m also an avid traveler in my personal life; I met my husband in France while teaching English in a small village, and am attempting to hit 40 countries before I turn 40. Some of my favorite places I’ve been include Scotland, Turkey, and Colombia. Outside of traveling, I love spending time with my family, reading good books, and staying active.

One of the main reasons I love to travel (and am excited for this particular trip with you!) is because I believe travel breeds empathy. It’s hard to judge someone if you’ve actually tried to walk in their shoes. I teach at Dougherty Valley High School in the Bay Area, and I can’t wait to share what we learn and experience with my students. Let’s grow together!

See you June 5th!
