Wenna Price

I studied at Keble College from 2001-2005 where I did my BA in French and German. During this time I was awarded a Dartmouth-Oxford Exchange Scholarship and spent a semester studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire.

In 2006-2007 I studied for a PGCE at the Department of Education. I worked in schools in Oxfordshire for the next three years, during which time I interviewed and mentored PGCE students for OUDE and delivered a professional development workshop at Hertford College for teachers from Hong Kong. In 2010 I moved to Lesotho in southern Africa where I taught and trained staff for a year before working at a school in Ethiopia in 2011.

I currently live in Washington D.C. where I will be based for the next four years. I work remotely for iSchool, a social enterprise in Zambia which aims to improve teaching and learning through the use of technology. iSchool is is partnering with the Zambian government to pilot the program in fourteen schools. In addition I am also studying part-time for a Masters in Public Administration – International Development with the University of York, and in 2013 will be writing my dissertation with a focus on teacher development in developing countries.

OES Country Champion

As country champion my focus would be to work with other alumni networks including the Oxford University Society United States Alumni Branches to reach out to potential members in order to create an active network of alumni working in or interested in education. I would organise four to six networking events per year in Washington D.C. including informal opportunities to connect socially with other members, as well as more formal speaking events. Through LinkedIn or Facebook I would create a platform for members to share relevant information such as news, events, research and career opportunities.
