Hannah teaches the children of cross-cultural Christian workers at Wellspring Academy in Chad.
Hannah first felt called to ministry among Third Culture Kids (TCKs) in 2010 when she taught at an international school in Rwanda. The TCK’s ‘third culture’ is made up of experiences that are unique to a child growing up with an internationally-mobile lifestyle.
Hannah has been teaching with AIM since 2013, working in a number of different contexts. Since 2016 Hannah has taught at Wellspring Academy, Chad. Wellspring Academy serves the children of cross-cultural Christian workers. While providing a quality education is at the heart of Wellspring’s work, providing a safe space for the students to talk, interact with others and grow in their faith as they live cross-culturally are all vital components of what the school does. TCKs often feel their strongest sense of belonging among other TCKs because they share a highly mobile lifestyle, and because of this Wellspring also offers support to homeschooling families across Chad.
Hannah teaches the youngest class and as well as teaching she works with the staff team to develop curriculum and policies as the school grows and develops. She is involved with running the homeschool weeks twice a year for those homeschooling their children across the country. She is also continuing to study French and build relationships in the community.
Hannah is also involved with her local church, which provides opportunities to grow in relationships, service and speaking French. She particularly appreciates the fellowship of the ladies group which she is a part of.
