Christina Carlucci graduated from East Stroudsburg University in May with a major in special education, middle level, with a concentration in math. She’s teaching math now, but in a place that is somewhat farther from Verona than northeastern Pennsylvania.

Carlucci, who graduated Verona High School with the class of 2015, is teaching in Thailand through the global education organization Council on International Educational Exchange (CIEE). After a five-day orientation in Bangkok, she moved on to Kalasin, a rural community in the northeastern part of Thailand, where she is teaching math to first through sixth grades.

CIEE offers study abroad programs for high school students and gap year programs, as well as internships and work abroad programs. Work programs are available in 10 countries (Chile, China, Czech Republic, Hungary, Morocco, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Thailand and Vietnam), and teachers get a small monthly salary plus housing. Teachers can work for a semester, as Carlucci is doing, or for an entire school year.
