buildOn Helps First-Year Teacher Succeed

He’s a city slicker who just got his first teaching job in the country. What he saw in this Nicaraguan village made him want to leave. His classroom is a shack with dirt floors, no electricity, and a stinky outhouse shared by all the students. But take a look at this video, as Chicago/Midwest Board Member Ryan Richert finds out what compelled a first-year teacher to stay on the job, and see how buildOn is improving education for this village.

buildOn is fortunate to have Midwest Board Member Ryan Richert traveling the globe with us to capture the incredible stories of the staff, students, volunteers and villagers committed to ending the global education crisis. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be bringing you the stories Ryan captures from the field.
