Santiago Christian School
My name is Valerie Davis. I live with my husband and three kids in the Dominican Republic, where I am a high school English teacher in an international school with primarily Dominican students. I love where I am, what I am doing, and the many experiences I have had living here for the last ten years. I just completed my Masters in English Literature through Gardner-Webb University. I an avid reader, I am fluent in Spanish, I love playing sports and doing physical activities of all kinds, I am a creative cook and gardener, and I am a member of a local Lutheran church, Iglesia Cordero de Dios. I participated in SEACS as a presenter two years ago and valued the experience–I hope to participate again this year.
