I have talked about the notion of "classroom teacher" vs. "school teacher" in posts before, and have begun to rethink this notion. ….
So now I have started to think about the “global teacher“. The global teacher has the best elements of the classroom and school teacher, but their focus is on “what is best for kids”, no matter if is their own kids, kids in the school across the street, or across the ocean. They got into teaching because they love students and want to help every single one of them, no matter their situation or location. They care for the kids in their classroom, they share openly with others in their school and connect with kids, but want to make things better past their own situation. They inspire change whether it is with one classroom in another school, or thousands. They also tap into others and bring the best to their students. The more we look at what others are doing, the better we can become for the students closest to us.
