This is a website for educators to help infuse global perspectives into your classroom. One global classroom comes from the idea that we are all global citizens and the world is our classroom. The tips and information given is a collection of my experience and resources. Since many people have asked for classroom resources and grant information, I have decided to put it all in one place.
This is a working website that I will be adding information and resources. Check back regularly for updates on teacher, student travel opportunities, classroom resources, ideas, and my personal international exchange experiences.
Please let me know if you have any requests for information.
I am happy to help. My philosophy is that we are all trying to help kids learn so lets work together to give students the best learning experience we can.
Changing education for a changing world
Remember that EVERYTHING is interconnected. Use the global competency matrix and curriculum guide to connect global perspectives, sustainability, and 21st century skills to your curriculum.
International Exchange Projects
As a result of my international professional development experiences I have been able to meet with teachers from all over the world and create hand-on real world learning opportunities for my students. Learn more about the projects.
