Guest Speaker visits Modern Lit
Andrea Sachse with the Cape Girardeau Zonta Club came to speak to Mrs. Layton's Modern Literature class (she is also a parent of some of ND alums). She travels to Haiti to do mission work in the hospitals, etc. with the Zonta Club. 
Modern Literature class read the book Mountains Beyond Mountains, about Dr. Paul Farmer, who has worked in Haiti for many years, serving the poor and critically ill. He is on a mission to wipe out Tuberculosis in the country and to provide medical and humanitarian aid to those most vulnerable. 
Mrs. Sachse came to speak with us about the work that the Zonta Club does, etc. which is similar to Dr. Farmer's work providing a real world connection to the book.
Thank you Mrs. Sachse for your time and your work in Haiti.
