Sky Lantz-Wagner (PCMI/TESOL '12) shares his journey from scuba-diving instructor to graduate student:
I never expected to become a teacher. After college, I worked as a scuba-diving instructor in Egypt, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico. Thanks in part to a degree in international business, I had the opportunity to found Whale Shark Experience, an ecotourism company in the Mayan Riviera. It was an adventure, but not a career path I wanted to follow.

Jenny Rose Tobin (TESOL '09) spent the summer working with beginning-level ESL high school students at an international boarding school, where she was a writing teacher and activities leader. Having used a social networking tool (Ning) in a CALL course at MIIS, Jenny Rose became interested in exploring this platform for sharing her summer students' writing, as well as a way to host their photos online.
