Meet the Team: My name is Cherie Calabrese. I was hired by ACES in 1998 as a Visual Arts Teacher. I have worked in several ACES programs teaching art education. The interest in traveling was cultivated by my mother who exposed our family early on with trips to different places and cultures. As a nurse she travelled all over the world experiencing cultures through the eyes of the medical field. This had a strong influence on how I wanted to experience the world. I have travelled near and far and enjoyed experiencing culture and artifacts from different places. ACES International has enabled me to do this with greater depth and purpose. Through AI I am still experiencing the art of cultures first hand but doing so with other educators and students in environments that I otherwise would not have opportunity to experience. This total experience has provided me a means to grow personally and professionally.
