Jan 17 2022 • 39 mins

On all Mercy Ships vessels, an academy is offered to all children who come to serve with their parents onboard. Kathryn Dungworth is a teacher from the UK who has been teaching onboard the Africa Mercy since 2019 and worked to set up the brand-new Academy onboard the Global Mercy. Having 2 Academies in operation will be a first for Mercy Ships.

In this episode, Kathryn shares her journey to join Mercy Ships as a volunteer teacher — an adventure she never expected! And how this unique environment for teaching has changed her life in unexpected ways. She will give us some insight into the Global Mercy Academy and share what she is most excited about for this new school. From a teacher’s perspective of life in a floating classroom, you don’t want to miss this episode.

If you’re a teacher and looking for an experience like none other – consider serving with us onboard one of our ships. Go to: www.academy.mercyships.org for all information about our academies and opportunities to serve with us.
