About the Millennium Fellow
Annemarie is a senior at Becker College majoring in Global Citizenship, specializing in education. She has worked as an early education teacher for several years, in Infant-pre-k classes. She never knew that she would be a teacher, but working in this field has driven her compassion and leadership growth in numerous ways. However, despite not knowing that she would be a teacher, she has always wanted to work in developing communities. Through her studies and work, she has only had more and more opportunities to really understand global developments and their affects on communities, families, and children, and access to education. Most recently, she has worked in rural areas of Jamaica and Haiti, in providing access to classroom materials and resources, for both students and teachers. Knowing just what a positive learning environment can do for a students development has given her a drive to help work to distribute access to quality education, and to work on engaging and encouraging others hoping to work in the educational field to broaden their perspective on how their knowledge and experiences can help teachers and students globally.
