My name is Jeromie Whalen, I am a teacher at Northampton High School and one of two fabulous Global Glimpse Leaders going on the trip to the Dominican Republic with you all! Before the trip, I wanted to let you know a little about myself, so here it goes!
I am 35 years old, use the pronouns he/him/his, and currently reside in South Hadley, MA. I have been a high school teacher for over eight years, specializing in communication and media production. I have a Master’s degree in Learning Media & Technology and I am currently working towards a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Science & Learning Technologies. I love all things technology and media and I work closely with various organizations and institutions to provide access to different populations of the community.
I will be reaching out in the next few weeks to learning a little about you all as well before we leave. I have been on two different Global Glimpse trips in my time as a GLL and I am very excited to share in this experience with you all. I know that you will all leave this trip with a newfound perspective on the world and yourself.
