From Bogotá to Bulgaria, recent graduate Trina Roth has traveled the globe teaching children at international schools while completing her Master’s of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree as a distance education student with the School of Information Studies (SOIS). Already having earned a master’s degree in education, Trina taught high school literature for ten years before growing restless for a new adventure. Together with her husband Joe, Trina packed up her penchant for literature and her love of libraries and headed south to Columbia, then to Bulgaria, and finally to Damascus, Syria where she currently resides.
