Monocacy Elementary School Teacher Documents Her South African Adventure
Erin McMahon, a 5th grade writing and STEM teacher at Monocacy Elementary School, traveled to Cape Town, South Africa during the summer of 2011. Harvard University selected Erin to work in township schools across Cape Town for 8 weeks. She had the opportunity not only to work but also to live in a township where she was fully immersed in South African cultures, traditions, and daily life. Her 8 week adventure abroad has afforded her the opportunity to bring international education issues and awareness to the students and community members of Monocacy. While the summer temperatures were soaring in MD, she was soaking up a South African winter and all that it had to offer. Read more about her 8 week experience on her personal blog.
