I struggle even now to let it sink in. After watching my email compulsively for weeks, I finally received my field experience posting through my US State Department Teachers for Global Classrooms fellowship. This July, I will travel to India and spend a month learning, teaching and studying one of the oldest cultures in the world.
But don't tell the students at SAA-SDS yet!! We are planning a big "reveal" assembly after Christmas break to get the whole school involved and engaged in my adventure.
These past few months have already taught me so much. Every aspect of my understanding of global education has changed and grown. The TGC coursework was so extensive and enlightening; it has deepened my commitment to incorporating global competencies into my teaching and sharing what I've learned, and will certainly continue to learn, as this fellowship adventure continues.
I will travel to Washington, DC this February to attend the Global Symposium, where I will finally meet the other members of this distinguished cohort and learn more about my future travels. Stay tuned as I would love for you to walk with me along this journey.
Enjoy this video I made as a part of my coursework. I give kudos to my students and colleagues who helped my put it together. Who knew that I would become a youtuber in this process? Ha!
