Last week I presented at the TeachME 2009 International Education Conference, in Dubai. It was a great pleasure to meet dedicated educators from across the Gulf Coast region.
While many of the attendees are expats, a sizable number were local teachers and administrators. Their similarity to American educators far surpassed any differences. A smile behind a face veil is no less joyful.
As President Obama said at his inauguration, "We cannot help but believe that …as our world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself…"
I suspect teachers will lead the way.
