Hello from Adam
Hi, I’m Adam Branson - a high school teacher at the Henry Street School for International Studies. I’m excited about the cultural immersion opportunity we have in Dharamsala and would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I grew up in a small Florida town, spending my childhood playing outside, camping as a Boy Scout, swimming in lakes and working as a lifeguard. My passion for photography lead me to New York, where I earned my BFA at the School of Visual Arts. I spent four summers working with the Fresh Air Fund as a counselor, lifeguard, and waterfront director.
In 2007 I traveled to Uganda in East Africa where I volunteered as an English and math teacher at a secondary school in a village called Ntenjeru. In addition to teaching, I collaborated with friends at a local NGO for a number of service projects, including Malaria prevention and HIV/AIDS education.
As a teacher, I spend most of my holidays traveling. Recently I’ve been blessed to spend time in Costa Rica, Spain, and Bahrain. I live with my dog, Buddy in Manhattan and attend graduate school at City College. You can see some of my photography at www.adambranson.com
