Cassie Hoene - Mission Leader
Hello! My name is Cassie Hoene and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to co-lead Ukraine Teaching Mission 2019. This past summer, I taught at ESS and fell in love. I fell in love with the country, with my students, with the university, and I rediscovered my love for teaching. I had 6 students, five of whom were seminarians, and by the end of ESS I considered them all my friends as well. My experience teaching at ESS changed my life, and I can not wait to go back.
I am currently a senior education and English major at Franciscan University. My goal is to teach high school English, but after teaching at ESS, I have grown to love teaching ESL as well. Over the past couple of years, mission work has been an extremely important part of my life and it has helped form me into the person I am today. I love serving the Lord and serving His children, whether that is through a foreign mission or volunteering at a local after-school program.
Glory to Jesus Christ! Glory forever!
