Chris Muyo ’12G (Martinez, Calif.) has had 19 years of Catholic education — from kindergarten all the way through his master’s degree in education from Providence College. He also has taught at a Catholic high school.
But in January, he will travel to rural Malaysia, where the residents are mostly Muslim, through a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship.
Muyo is excited about the prospect of exposing other people to American culture and developing skills to bring back home.
“I have a lot of students from Asian countries in my classroom who came over as exchange students,” he said. “It will be nice to learn more about English language learners and learn how they’re taught English in their countries.”
