Abby Harraden

Principia College

B.A. Secondary Education and Spanish Language

Abby comes to TSS after five years of teaching high school Spanish at a private boarding school in St. Louis, MO. While teaching there, she had the opportunity to go on many trips with students, both nationally with Outward Bound expeditions and internationally, including leading a service trip to the Dominican Republic. Being involved in many facets of students’ lives and experiences, including expeditionary trips, reminded her that there can be such magic to hands-on learning alongside others while in new environments. She is looking forward to a lifestyle with a different sense of free time than what comes with classroom teaching. So far in her free time she likes to be outside, spend quality time with people, drink coffee and be around horses.
