I am the founder of Teachers Without Borders, a non-profit organization focusing on teacher professional development on a global scale.
At over 59 million, teachers are the largest group of trained professionals in the world. As transmitters of knowledge and community leaders, teachers are powerful catalysts for lasting global change. However, their professional development is often irrelevant, inconsequential, or missing entirely. Teachers must therefore have a support network to provide the resources, training, tools and colleagues they need to fulfill their important role. Teachers Without Borders offers that support.
I have led two schools and wrote: Rebel Without a Car: A Principal's Guide to Adolescence. My dissertation topic (let's say late 20h century), "Qualities of an Educated Teen for the 21st Century," led to a recommendation to build upon the indisputable connection between teachers and international development.
