I'm enormously excited about sharing information again about the upcoming Teachers for Global Classrooms applications. And not only because this State Department-sponsored program offers great professional development (online and in person) and travel to Brazil, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Morocco (!) or Ukraine. Although that's certainly enough to excite any global teacher.
What really excites me, and thrills me, quite frankly, is that I recently heard from a North Carolina teacher who applied last year, was accepted, and, in her words, is now on "an amazing journey" that will take her abroad in summer, 2012.
This could be you, dear reader, dear teacher. Please apply by March 12. Go on your own amazing journey. It's your turn.
