Alethia and I worked together intensively from August to December 2011 as Traveling Faculty with World Learning/IHP Cities in the 21st Century program. I was very impressed by her strong teaching and facilitation skills, particularly her creativity in building engaging exercises and her amazing ability to be spontaneous and adapt activities to the needs of the moment. Alethia had a natural ease and interaction with students and great ability to challenge them in a gentle but powerful way. As a colleague she was extremely organised, effectively developing collective work material and ensuring we were on task in multiple intensive meetings throughout the semester. She is a great listener and also gave excellent feedback and advice in our weekly team check-in sessions. Alethia is an extremely supportive, reliable and intelligent woman who I would not hesitate to work with again in the future.
