Meet Teagan Dinslage!

dinslage

My name is Teagan Dinslage.

I am a graduate student studying speech-language pathology.

I have been married to my husband, Scott, for three years. We are the “parents” of an adorable rescued mutt named Rudy.

I grew up in a rural, German community in Minnesota that values families and faith. Gatherings always involved food (hot dishes & jello salads) and games (dominoes & cribbage). Despite being blessed with a tall frame, I was never interested (or coordinated enough to be interested) in playing basketball. Amongst other things, in my current studies I am particularly drawn to the subjects of speech science, phonetics, and dialects, and how these influence therapy. On this trip I hope to observe and learn from the communication that occurs within and between different cultures, as well as broaden my understanding of Indian history and culture in particular.

  1. We will be praying for you as you prepare for your trip and during your time in India. May your sense of purpose and faith in your God lead you to be a positive influence on those you meet. Love Mom.
