Kiel Harell

Kiel Harell was an English teacher in China through the Rural China Education Foundation, which helps to educate children in rural Shanxi Province. Immigration plays a major role in the lives of the people Kiel taught. Many rural people must travel to cities in order to find work, leaving their children behind in villages. These are the children that Kiel taught. Prior to teaching in China, Kiel was a special education teacher at Raul Besteiro Middle School in Brownsville, Texas through the Teach for America program and Americorps.

Matthew, Kiel, and John all lived together as housemates during their final year in Brownsville.
