Westminster Christian Academy English teacher Ann Heyse  uses her international volunteer activities to inspire her students. Using her teaching background, Heyse spent six weeks in war-torn Uganda with 15 other educators from around the country to help teachers and students return to a state of normalcy after 22 years of war. She discovered not only that the school buildings were destroyed and school supplies were non-existent, but virtually everyone she met had witnessed, or been a victim of, violence or atrocities.
