Mindy Eichhorn (Ed.D. 2014)

I am currently an assistant professor in the Education Department at Gordon College, where I teach undergraduate and graduate-level courses in special education, assessment, and early childhood / elementary math methods.

 

I am involved in a pilot study investigating the challenges out of school youth face in learning mathematics in Mumbai and Bangalore, India. These students face hardships at home – most of them live in extreme poverty, and encounter many environmental stressors, including trauma, which impact their learning in the classroom.

Judith Obiero (Ed.D. 2014)

After graduating I worked as an academic coordinator for the Dept. of Labor Job Corps Program in Chicopee from 2014 till August this year. I was in charge of the literacy and numeracy components of the technical education of the Job Corps program. This job presented an excellent opportunity for me to see how the US was trying to achieve EFA goals by reaching the marginalized and out of school population. I wouldn’t have had the knowledge and skill set to effectively carry out my duties were it not for the excellent all round education I received from CIE.

I come from India – a land of rich cultural and social heritage. Development in modern India has not been uniform. While on the one end, the country has made great strides in information technology industry, while on the other end we find poverty accompanied by low levels of literacy. There is portion of the population that is upwardly mobile, but there is a greater portion that is trapped by strong belief in India’s traditional social system. The rural communities live their lives as day laborers or subsistence farmers.

I am so excited to begin studying at CIE!  I just returned from India, where I have worked since 2004.  Most recently, I was a special education consultant for Destiny Education, Mumbai.  I traveled all over Mumbai and the rest of India in order to train teachers in special education techniques.  I also assisted schools as they developed programs and policies for students with special learning needs.  Being a consultant was a marvelous experience – I met so many wonderful teachers, students, and parents from all over the country.

My focus was always on how to educate people (minorities and uneducated) about good health practices. I was always thinking, what as an educator should I know before teaching people. I realized that in order to reach people’s minds, I need to know how, so my work will be effective.

Jakarta is a nice place to pursue my carrier while Bandung is a right place to live. From Monday to Friday, I used to stay in Jakarta and in the weekend I go back home to Bandung.

My passion for international education is rooted in my experiences as a Peace Corps Volunteer in both Mali (2008-2010) and China (2010-2012). When I joined Peace Corps I had aspirations of working in public health, especially because of its reliance on community peer educators. In a twist of fate that has since defined the course of my life, Peace Corps opted not to assign me to work in public health, but rather, to serve as a teacher in an experimental school in Mali.
