An aspiring educator, in his travels Cramer will explore education across an array of cultures in hopes of learning how to empower the next generation of young students. He is excited to visit the Himalayas and learn how Buddhist monks have integrated teaching modern science with ancient Buddhist principles. Cramer seeks to learn how cultural differences impact teacher preparation, resources for student development, and math and science preparation. “Everywhere I go,” says Cramer, “I will share my passion for children and education to connect with people and encourage a hope for unity in our world.
