Allegra Toriano is also known as aka Salimata Sané. She was a TEFL Teacher in the C.E.G. (high school) of Oussouye. Her main job was teaching English to 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year high school students. In addition, she hosted an English Language Club in school where students met informally once a week to discuss whatever they wanted in English. She was the 1st and last American to teach in this school. In her first year classes, she had 60 students in a class that was meant for 30. As a secondary project, she built 'ban ak suf' (Guatemalan Mud Stoves) and hung out with other teachers or with her Senegalese family.
