About Scott Abrahams

Scott Abrahams skipped class one day and ended up in his college cafeteria talking to a classmate who convinced him to go teach English in China for a year. Up to that point his entire experience with Asia had been writing a play for a friend’s Lunar New Year Festival celebration. Scott spent the summer working at an English language program for high schoolers in northern China and then the academic year in a public middle school in the south.
