A TEACHER from TAFE Queens­land's Her­vey Bay and Mary­bor­ough cam­puses has re­turned home after spend­ing more than a month over­seas teach­ing in de­vel­op­ing coun­tries.

Mar­garet Ford set off for the small Pa­cific is­land na­tion of Kiri­bati in Au­gust be­fore head­ing to Laos.

During her stint in Kiri­bati, she was part of a team that helped train and men­tor fi­nance and busi­ness teach­ers of a lo­cal ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tute.

In Laos, she helped un­der­priv­i­leged women, who were univer­sity grad­u­ates, gain lead­er­ship qual­i­fi­ca­tion.
