Renee Thessing
Panama 2011-2013

Renee served as a Teaching English volunteer where she co-taught with Panamanian English teachers in her community’s school and collaborated with her closest PCV neighbors to offer professional development workshops to English teachers of the province. After her service in Panama, she committed to teaching English Learners in U.S. public schools.  Currently, she develops programs to engage immigrant and refugee families of Metro Nashville Public Schools. An adventurous spirit, with ties in Illinois, Renee chases whitewater on the weekends.
