It’s our second special 38 Throwback Thursday post.
In honor of our upcoming Global Teachers program to Germany, we’re revisiting our 2014 Germany program.
Minette Finney-Lewis was one of the participants in the 2014 program and for her, the experience was an opportunity to see what she and other teachers are preparing their students for – the global community. Part of the lesson plan she created in a follow-up after the program revolved around problem-solving, a skill she saw taught to German students early on, in geography and healthy living. Finney-Lewis, formerly a teacher in Cabarrus County, now teaches at American United School in Kuwait.
Your donation of $38, $380, or $3,800 will continue to provide teachers like Minette the opportunity to bring the world to their classroom and help prepare students for being a part of the global community.
Introducing one of our newer staff members: Nick Rau. Nick joined Go Global NC in August 2016 and is director of education and training. In the video below, Nick shares more about his role at our organization and his international “a ha” moment.
May is National Photo Month. Each photograph tells a million stories and during our programs, participants take a lot of photographs.
We invite you to help us learn those stories.
All you have to do is to submit a photograph from your program travel and the story behind the moment. What were you learning? What made
this moment stick out in your mind?
Our first Behind the Photograph is with Matt Scialdone, a participant in the Global Teachers South Africa 2016 program. Click below to listen to his story of a child demonstrating the ingenuity that he wants to teach all of his students.
Inspired by her participation with Global Teachers South Africa 2016, Leslie Burwell wanted to share that experience with her visual arts students at Northwood High School in Pittsboro, NC. The result was the puppet show “One Home,” created with the help of the Paperhand Puppet Intervention. All proceeds from the November 18-19 shows went to Chatham United Way and LIV Village in South Africa.
