About this Grantee

To inform the development of culturally relevant curriculum for her diverse students, Ms. Bremer attends a summer seminar for teachers on South East Asian history and culture run by the University of Hawaii’s East-West Center. Ms. Bremer travels to Vietnam, Thailand, and Cambodia and participates in home-stays, visits to historical sites, and meetings with local leaders and educators. Using these experiences, Ms. Bremer works with her colleagues in the humanities department to develop standards-based curricular units on South East Asia.
