‘TCK’s’ Believe it or Not: Unbelievable Stories From the World of International Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Using humour, pictures and stories from his experiences growing up in two conflict zones--Cyprus and Yemen--and working in International education, the presenter will motivate and encourage you, and make you laugh. He will share some of his unbelievable, but true, experiences, from working with an Al Qaeda bomb maker in North Africa to having his pockets picked at 80 km on a freeway. The life of an international educator may be many things, but boring is not one of them! Through these stories, he will share life lessons for today’s world and classroom. As a ‘TCK’ himself (Third Culture Kid) his goal is to make you understand the importance of a global vision, and possibly get you thinking about starting a new adventure called international education, all while tickling your funny bone!
