Today, I am a guest blogger at Kirby’s Lane: A Place for Readers and Bloggers. I discuss some of my experiences at an international school in Bangalore. Teaching in India made me more aware of what it means to be an effective teacher and why it is important to periodically step outside one’s comfort zone. Take a few moments and follow this link to Kirby’s site. She offers a wonderful forum for guest bloggers who write about reading and writing.
I’d love to hear from people who have stepped outside their comfort zone or have taught abroad. Please consider leaving a comment.
