A brief history of time as a teacher and as a volunteer in international collaboration. The session will focus on the problems faced by teachers and students in Canada and in the developing world by comparing and contrasting. The session will hopefully inspire everyone to strive to be a better teacher and more understanding of the family culture from which each child comes to us.
