My Students

My students are looking to expand their understanding of what it means to be a global citizen. I teach in a suburban area of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. One of the great programs that both our state and our high school offers is called Global Scholars. Upon graduation, students can earn a certificate through our state by completing specific course work, reading and reviewing a number of cultural literacy works, being active in school sponsored activities that emphasize global learning, and completing hours of community service or service learning that emphasize global concerns or issues.

Although our school is based in an economically advantaged district, the students feel as if they need to be exposed to more experiences that introduce them to different global cultures and international issues.

My Project

Our program's goal is to increase global competence in our students by tutoring K-12 students in Milwaukee Public Schools that are refugees from Myanmar and Syria.

This project will help cover the cost of monthly bus transportation to a tutoring center in Milwaukee that works with K-12 students that are classified as refugees from Myanmar and Syria so my students can tutor students.

In helping develop global competence in our students, we hope to integrate knowledge of the world and the skill of application with the disposition to think and behave productively.

Global competence is not restricted to knowing about other cultures and other perspectives. In addition to knowledge of the world, a globally competent citizen exhibits habits like critical thinking, rational optimism, innovation, empathy, and awareness of the influences of culture on individual behavior and world events.
