Our challenge is to meet the needs of children

Now is the time

The challenges in front of us are great as we come together as a global community to address basic human needs and to flourishas a human kind. As the largest professional group on the planet at 59 million, we, the teachers can come together to make the necessary changes toimprove the quality of life for all. Archimedes once said, "Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I will move the Earth." We, the teachers, are that lever.

Assignment 2: Gratitude and Celebration

This Certificate of Teaching Mastery began with Hospitality. You may remember that in the first assignment of theIntroductory Seminar we asked you to describe to your mentor how it is in your culture that someone is made to feel welcome. We ask you now to complete thefollowing:

  • Describe how it is in your culture that someone expresses gratitude or thanks.
  • Describe how it is in your culture that someone celebrates after an accomplishment as large as completing this Certificate of TeachingMastery.
  • Create a visual image that represents you and your life as a teacher. You may wish to draw it, sketch it, or dance it. Describe that visualimage.
  • Send your answers to 1-3 to your mentor and to your cohort.
  • Once you've read your learning circle's response to #2, include 1 idea from each person in your celebration so that as you celebrate - wherever you are - you will also feel the presence of your learningcircle and your mentor.

Your electronic teaching portfolio

Your electronic Teaching Portfolio is available for you to use in a number of different ways after the completion of theCertificate of Teaching Mastery:

  • You can add to it or delete from it, especially as your résumé changes and other letters of support are written that you wish to add.(Remember, too, once you get your mentor's Letter of Recommendation you'll want to add that to your portfolio.)
  • If you would like to share your work for the Certificate of Teaching Mastery with a potential employer, a colleague, or friend, simply givethat person the website address and your full name, and they'll be able to view the contents of your portfolio.
  • Your Teaching Portfolio is active (free of charge) for two full years after the completion of your Certificate of Teaching Mastery.

(At that time, we'll let you know the cost of keeping it active.)

Starting a Community Teaching and Learning Center (CTLC)

The heart of any village, town, or city is the center where learning takes place. A place where people from the community can cometogether to talk, to meet, to discuss, to learn, to connect with each other, and - in the case of computer availability - to connect with the world.Teachers Without Borders supports the development and growth of Community Teaching and Learning Centers (CTLC).

If your Service Project helped you to move towards this goal, you may wish to continue by taking our full course on how to start a CTLCin your area. This can provide you with the opportunity for community leadership and a possible source of income.

If your Service Project was not connected to starting a CTLC and you wish to learn more, read about Teachers Without Borders CTLC onour website, and then you, too, may wish to take our CTLC course.
