Anne got her start in education at the Chicago Children’s Museum where she worked on cultural programs. (“Play and Learning Facilitator” is still the best job title she has ever had). She has taught English around the globe from working with elementary schoolers in South Korea to supporting airline and shipping employees in Argentina. Anne is passionate about supporting accessible pathways to education and worked with immigrant and refugee students in the ESOL Bridge to College and Careers Program at Northern Essex Community College in Lawrence, MA. Before coming to Brown she was also an instructor for the A.C.E. Language Institute at the University of Rhode Island, which offered international students linguistic and cultural support as an alternative pathway to college instead of traditional English language placement exams.
