一个世界

国际教师分享全球视野

作者:Shannon T. Zarb |   回到目录


Ravenscroft’s international faculty bring authentic global perspectives to their classrooms and the greater school community, providing yet another avenue by which our teachers prepare students to succeed in an increasingly interconnected world. 凯蒂·巴恩威尔, 世界语言系主任, 说, “学生 benefit from the ability to interact with a native speaker as well as have a deeper understanding of that individual’s culture and current perspectives outside of the U.S.”

We asked some of our international faculty what they miss most about their home countries and how they believe their experiences and perspectives most benefit their students here at Ravenscroft.

Ana Maria Mendez,低年级西班牙语教师 
哥伦比亚

哥伦比亚到处都是山脉、色彩和美丽的大自然. You love the country where you come from and love it even more when you are far from it. I grew up watching soccer, dancing salsa and eating the arepas (cornmeal cakes) prepared by my aunts. Family is everything in my life, and it is what I miss the most. 

My goal is to develop a sense of respect for other cultures and traditions. 澳门线上赌城官方APP需要有同理心的领导者, ethics and all the willingness to help people regardless of their race, 色彩与语言.

在正确的: 准备去参观 圣费利佩德巴拉哈斯城堡在卡塔赫纳, 哥伦比亚, 门德斯和她的家人受到了帕伦克拉的欢迎, 这是一个标志性的标志,提醒着人们曾经的非洲奴隶, in 1691, declared independence from Spanish colonial powers and founded the first free community of the Americas, 帕伦克.

杰西卡·扬宗,高中社会学科老师 
尼泊尔

尼泊尔以喜马拉雅山和珠穆朗玛峰而闻名. 这是一个美丽的, diverse nation with 126 distinct ethnic groups and as many diverse cuisines as there are people! 我想念这里的山、文化、家人、朋友和食物. 

My experiences have made me realize the value of listening to multiple perspectives and appreciating different ways of life. 我经常用这个镜头来教学, 尤其是在全球问题这门课上, encouraging students to look at all sides of an issue to extend their empathy.

在正确的: Yonzon explores Segovia, Spain, during a 2017 exchange program with 上学校 students. “Everytime I go somewhere new and meet new people, I realize how much I did not know before!永宗说. “有很多方法可以思考, see and do things around the world and there is so much more for me to learn. 这就是为什么我喜欢我在全球教育领域的工作.”

Richa Dolia,高中科学老师
印度

印度 is a country with diverse languages, landscapes, delicious foods, 宗教s and clothing. I miss the close kinship with neighbors and access to friends and babysitters. I also miss being able to call our elderly “Uncle” and “Auntie” as a term of endearment, 而不是因为你和他们有血缘关系. 

I consider myself blessed to be able to live and work in two completely different countries. Being in a new environment has not only made me question the norms, 仪式和澳门线上赌城官方APP在家乡做事的方式, but it has also helped me become more resilient and able to adjust.

在正确的: 多利亚和她的家人聚集在古吉拉特邦, 印度, in January 2019 to celebrate the head-shaving ceremony for her young son. “The first (pure) set of hair is donated to a Hindu deity,” she explained.

刘怡雯,中学普通话教师
台湾

Growing up in a Chinese-speaking country, I was immersed in both local and international affairs. There are a lot of traditions, such as rituals honoring our ancestors, food customs and festivals. Although I miss the ability to vote and make changes in my home country, I also appreciate the opportunity to be a global citizen by stepping out of my comfort zone and relocating to the United States. 

在我的课堂上, I always encourage students to show respect to the target culture by recognizing inappropriate behaviors to avoid misunderstandings. Being open-minded and seeking positive ways to celebrate differences will lead us to a world with less conflict. 

在正确的: Liu visits Hualian, in eastern 台湾, to present at a Chinese-language teaching conference in 2018. “I also got to reunite with my family and travel around the island,” she 说. “It was a wonderful experience meeting different relatives throughout the trip.”
