Hi everyone! My name is Emily Driessen and I will be one of the Global Glimpse Leaders traveling to San Juan de la Maguana! I can’t believe we are 4 days away and I am looking forward to this opportunity to spend 16 days in this beautiful country together!

A little bit about me- I grew up in the western suburbs of St. Charles. I attended Illinois State University where I received a degree in Health and Physical Education. After college I landed a job at Pritzker College Prep where I worked for 5 years. While at Pritzker I had the pleasure of coaching three sports (volleyball, basketball, softball), which I still do today as well asĀ  become a part of the Global Glimpse family! Two years ago I left Prtizker and now teach at South Elgin High School. Between these two high schools I have had the pleasure of traveling with students throughout the United States as a chaperone for softball tournaments, band trips and ROTC competitions. I am looking forward to this next adventure and traveling internationally with you all!
