Rudy Brandl

Mrs. Nicole Nolan, History Department Chair and Director of Global Scholars and Community Outreach, made a presentation at the Global Education Benchmark Group (GEBG) conference at Lower Canada College in Montreal last week. Mrs. Nolan was joined by Taylor DeMaio, Vice President of The Empathy Equality Entrepreneurship Mission (TEEEM), a non-profit organization run by educators that connects K-12 schools with humanitarian nonprofits around the world.

The presentation, titled Empowering Students to Become Global Citizens in Classrooms and Across Continents, provided strategic vision and initiatives for educating students in today’s interconnected world. Wardlaw+Hartridge and TEEEM have been working together to identify problems and brainstorm solutions to help combat issues within their respective communities. Through these unique and innovative programs, TEEEM students and their global partners support hundreds of thousands of people by treating patients, feeding children, educating students, empowering women, building infrastructure and providing hope across five continents. 

W+H students have been actively working with TEEEM since fall of 2023, supporting One Spirit, an organization that works with the Lakota Nation on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.  W+H TEEEM members include Rajwans Sindhar ’25, Tapleen Kaur ’25, Aarya Patel ’25, Oliver Laskow ’25, Adam Eisdorfer ’25, Daniel Zaidi ’25, Jasteij Sappal ’25, Kate Wolff ’25, Amelie Leu ’25, Hope Nasulme ’25, Arjun Vora ’25, Giselle Rodriguez ’25, Chiara Baldi ’26 and Natalie Chen ’26. 

In August, a group of 12 W+H TEEEM members will join Mrs. Nolan and Ms. DeMaio on a trip to Lakota Nation’s Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.
