Adventures in International Schools

1,404

Published on

My keynote for the Global Ed Conference 2013.

For the last 14 years I've been living and teaching in international schools around the world. From Munich, Germany to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Bangkok, Thailand, and now Yokohama, Japan, teaching internationally has been an amazing and fantastic adventure. Every country, school and community has taught me something new, and every day I am envious of my students who have grown up in this ever-changing environment. During this presentation, I'll share some of the key highlights (for me) of teaching in international schools. I hope this will encourage you to start your own adventure in a new country too!
