Molly graduated with a BA in International Development and Social Change from Clark University in 2013. During her time at Clark, she spent a semester in the Dominican Republic as part of a service-learning program where she assisted in a community health and nutrition project. She quickly developed a love for the people, culture and the language. Her experiences in the Dominican Republic inspired her to pursue work in community education and collaboration. Since graduating from Clark, she has worked as an elementary school special education paraprofessional, specializing in autism integration. She continues to enjoy her work with children with Autism but has missed being immersed in Latin American culture. Molly is excited to have the opportunity to work with BECA during the 2014-2015 school year and to continue to grow as an educator.
