Dayna has been actively involved in mission work and teaching English to internationals for over fifteen years. It started when she and a professor’s wife from Wake Forest University, saw the need for cultural and English classes for new students. They worked together to start an ESL program at a large church in the community. Soon an international library was established and Dayna began working with students from many nationalities on campus. She became actively involved in overseas missions and was trained by International Mission Board missionaries and received certification from the North American Mission Board to teach ESL. She has been a team leader for multiple trips overseas. She also received a master’s degree in TESOL from Regent University and works as an independent contractor for individuals and businesses teaching American culture and English. She recently taught English to a group of Chinese through a summer program at Regent and now teaches executives for a Spanish company in Chesapeake.
