About Me

rebeccaI’m Rebecca and I’m proud to say I’m a wife, mother, grandmother, former teacher/school librarian, former Marine, and semi-retired.  I love my family, travel, reading, photography, writing, international news and friendships, music, festivals, technology, movies.

My current mission is to help others explore the world of exchange students and to investigate how schools can improve the mutual experiences of exchange students and the regular school population. I volunteer and work as the GED online consultant for MyCareerTools website and answer students questions and help them to stay motivated.

I want to hear from others who are interested in these things or have cool stories to tell about their experiences in the world of student exchange. It is all about learning and improving, isn’t it??
