Welcome to ‘Our Global Classroom’. This website is a way for myself and my class to communicate with each other and the global world.
I am a classroom teacher located in Traralgon, Australia. I call myself a teaching workaholic, always looking for new ideas to inspire the students in my classroom. My passion is globalising classrooms and connecting with educators all over the world, to develop initiatives to inspire teachers to follow my lead. I have been extremely lucky to have travelled the world sharing my classroom and this website with teachers globally. Cultural diversity and intercultural relationships are a vital part of teaching students about the world. I love the above picture where I was lucky enough to meet amazing young teachers in Qatar at the iEARN conference. You will find lesson ideas, global concepts and my own critical thinking ‘Look to Learn’ lessons on the website. Explore the categories and bring the world into your classroom.
