Marsha Ray has been an educator for more than 3 decades. Her work first began in the U.S. junior and senior high schools. Then, after a move to Paris, France, she taught at the American School of Paris and finally at a Liceo Scientifico near Milan, Italy. She is fluent in Italian and French and believe that because of my 17 years in Europe, she brings an informed and unique voice to her current study abroad advising role.) Upon returning to the States in l990, Marsha became a full time instructor and adjunct professor in the English Department and in the School of Education at DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois.
In 1998, Marsha founded Student Extended Experiences Consulting, Inc., an organization, which helps students, just like you, design GAP year, college sabbatical, and study abroad experiences. These opportunities would take you down different paths, but always paths of your choice. It’s in the process of exploring yourself that you grow, think differently, and define your academic path and your career goals.
