For the past few days I’ve been in Atlanta, Georgia for an international educators training/extended workshop. The sessions have been interesting– the days are long, but being here in a large room of like-minded people really energizes me. I feel full of fresh ideas, insights, and contacts.
When I was an undergrad student I think my family worried that I’d never find a job… who studies “Global Studies” and “African Studies” anyway? Who spends half their time learning languages and traveling to other countries? But I couldn’t have found a better niche than international education.
Plus I think today I talked one of my new colleagues into taking her next family vacation to Nepal ;)
