Brianna Chessock graduated from E&H in May 2018 and headed to Brazil to teach English for the summer before starting her first year of teaching. While at E&H Brianna was a member of the swim team and completed her endorsement in Elementary Education PK-6 and Middle School English 6-8. She is currently enjoying her first year of teaching 4th grade in Caroline County Public Schools, Bowling Green, VA.
As for Brazil, it was amazing! It was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had and I’m really glad I did it. I felt that I was more prepared to help teach there effectively and I also think I was able to take away more from the experience in the school since I am already comfortable in a school setting after student teaching. The trip is good to be able to compare American schools with Brazilian schools.
