Photo Kate MinI graduated from California State University, Chico with degrees in International Relations and Latin American Studies. Right after graduation, I did a teaching credential program in social science. Later I worked as a head teacher at the peace center of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Korea for two years. Currently I am in a Master of Arts program in International Educational Development at Teachers College, Columbia University.

My Latin American Studies major has helped me to connect with my students from Latin America and develop curricula in an international education context. Currently I am taking a graduate course called ‘Education Across the Americas.’ My previous coursework in Latin American politics, economy, society, and culture gives me more aptitude to analyze its education systems. I have met many people who have worked in Latin America previously as a teacher or a coordinator of  international institutions who are now pursuing the Master’s degree in education specializing in Latin America. Spanish and Latin American Studies together give you many more opportunities in internship and part-time/full-time jobs.
