Dr. Kemeh is the coordinator of the Creative Arts and Early Childhood and Creative Arts and Elementary programs at Lesley. During his post-graduate teacher training for his Postgraduate Certificate in Education from University of Leeds, UK, he taught in British secondary schools and colleges, and has taught at the University of Ghana, where he had coordinated numerous theatre for development outreach projects connected with issues on health, adult literacy, teen pregnancy, and women's socio-economic improvement.
