ABOUT YOUR HOST
Lillie is a six-foot-tall Bostonian who began solo traveling during her college summers. Directly after college, Lillie entered the Boston Public Schools as a high school English teacher and proceeded to teach for six fascinating and mega-intense years.
In the summer of 2009, after much scheming and saving, Lillie took an unpaid Leave of Absence from teaching to circumnavigate the globe. For the next nine months, she had a truly wonderful time sightseeing in Japan and Southeast Asia, volunteer teaching in Ghana, and writing like crazy in Iberia! You can read about the whole adventure at AroundTheWorldL.
Lillie is currently back in her beloved hometown of Boston, totally reenergized in her public school English teaching career. Seeing the difference that extended travel made in her career and her life, Lillie is now launching a movement through TeachingTraveling to inspire and assist more teachers to travel, and more travelers to teach, thus transforming the educational experience of our world.
Lillie is thrilled to now have a career that combines teaching, writing, and travel… and helping guide great people like yourself to make their travel dreams a reality!
