Local Coordinator Jan Ligman has been working with CIEE for five years and in that time has supervised dozens of CIEE High School USA students. Living in the Coachella Valley, California, Jan works with students attending Palm Valley School and Desert Sands Unified School District.
Jan first decided to become a Local Coordinator after she and her husband hosted several international college students and enjoyed learning about them and their countries.
In her work outside of CIEE, Jan is an elementary school teacher and has been working with children for over 30 years. She has her Master’s degree in education. Throughout the year Jan supports her students at their various athletic and extracurricular events and always looks for the best in the students she supervises.
