Summer of 2018

For six weeks in June and July of 2018, I taught English to college students at Ukrainian Catholic University, during their Summer English School in Lviv, Ukraine. It was a wonderful experience, working with some amazing students and getting to know Ukrainian culture, as well as being able to share some of my books with them.
