During this #GlobalGoals week we take on the challenge to teach empathy. To teach social good. To provide equitable education experiences for all students. Because by 2030 we want to live in a world where the #GlobalGoals aren’t just a wish—but an achievement.

"Because we have a lot of support here I don't think it's as scary as when I first applied. I’m looking forward to meeting my class and new teachers at the school to see how they do things differently than they do in my country." - Sara, Scotland

"When I was researching, Participate was just the best. It had everything upfront showing me what I need to do, what was required of me and what would happen when I came to North Carolina. Participate gave me that comfort, support and a safety network." - Jenella, Guyana #howiparticipate#meetourparticipateteachers
"A global educator to me is a teacher who can teach beyond limits. That person who loves to learn. When you inspire students to love to learn, then learning is fun. Going beyond the norm and being open-minded." - Shellome, Jamaica #howiparticipate

"I really want to share things about my culture. Not only from Colombia but from the city I am from--Bogota. I think that it's a great opportunity to learn from people who live in the U.S. It's an incredible chance to share things about what i know as a teacher and learn from other teachers around the room." - Maira, Colombia

🚨 IMPORTANT 🚨
As you may have seen, Hurricane Florence is expected to impact the Carolinas later this week. To all of our international teachers who may need to evacuate, make sure you have:
Full tank of gas
Fully charged phone and charger
International teachers: if you are in need or live in an unaffected area where others can stay, tweet using #participatehelps. We will be monitoring this hashtag and connecting teachers.
Please stay safe and check the status of the storm. Your safety is our priority.

Meet our teachers! Paul is from the UK and can't wait to share his culture with his students!
"Being open and having a global mind is essentially at the core of being a global educator. Teaching in another culture, another setting is humbling enough to realize I'm not going to know everything." - Paul, UK

Getting to know other people not only makes you a better person, but it opens your mind to better opportunities." - Andrea, Ecuador #howiparticipate#meetourparticipateteachers
