Meet your Session 2 Program Leader: Kayla Dorsey-Twumasi



    I was recently added as one of the Program Leaders for the Session II cohort departing to Ghana this weekend. I am originally from Utica, New York, but currently live in Lowell, MA where I serve as an elementary Assistant Principal. Prior to moving to MA  with my husband four years ago, I taught middle and high school social studies in Miami, Fl. While in Miami, I traveled with my students to Greece, Turkey, and South Africa. This will be my first year serving as a Program Leader for CIEE. However, this will be my third time traveling to Ghana. I first fell in love with Ghanaian culture when I studied abroad at the University of Ghana as an undergraduate student. That experience further sparked my interest in international travel, and international education. Given the impact that semester in Ghana had on my life, I relish opportunities to go abroad, and help ignite that same spark in students as they explore and understand other cultures. I love learning from students, and am excited to get to know all CIEE participants. During our time together, I look forward to watching participants grow, challenge themselves, and contribute positively to this experience!

See you soon,

Kayla Dorsey-Twumasi
