    Greetings

    Welcome to the site. I would recommend Search Associates. They are the great IMHO. TieOnline.com is a good listing agent. The nicest group to work with is trueteaching.com It is a husband and wife team and they personally know all the school and interview every candidate.

    Greetings

    Hi to all!! My name is Dana. I have been an educator for 11 years. I am a certified Special Education (K-12)/ General Education (4-8) Teacher as well as a Certified Teacher Trainer in Classroom Management/ Student Engagement and Motivation. I have had the "itch" to teach abroad for several years now. My young children are now young adults and I feel free to move on with my life in a direction of adventure, enjoyment and travel. I believe that my career in education should be able to afford me such rich learning and sharing opportunities. I would love to get started for fall of next year! I am currently teaching 5th grade RLA for my state. I am a novice when it comes to choosing reputable companies that recruit and I want my experience to be a pleasant one. I hope to learn from the experiences of people via the forum.. All the best!!

  7. BIG DATA is being hyped as the greatest tool since the printing press, and whist I generally disagree [I like learning about the outliers], "The Eviction Lab at Princeton University has built the first nationwide database of evictions. Find out how many evictions happen in your community. Create custom maps, charts, and reports. Share facts with your neighbors and elected officials." https://evictionlab.org This is an incredible tool for teaching about poverty, community, an even globalization.

    HELLO

    Hi Y'all- New Int'l Educator, 23 years teaching public school in CA, now off to S. America and new adventures. C
  10. http://cps.adobeeducate.com/?trackingid=BJ4T3JGK Adobe, in support of their Creative Cloud products, sponsored a study focusing on teaching creativity. It seems that their definitions of "creativity" and "technology" require a computer and great software. However, their findings are interesting. Those surveyed were in the US, UK, Germany, and Japan. Japan's classrooms are the least resourced. Part of what we, as international educators, need to consider is glossed in this survey. What is creativity? Does "inquiry learning," the current buzz word in global curriculum, push being creative? Does leading a student through a process of asking and answering his own questions lead to creativity? Can true creativity be taught? Can it be nurtured? Does a box of scraps, pieces of wood, string, and assorted pieces of metal joinery produce more creativity in the workplace of the future? Or is making beautiful infographics and distilling information a product of creativity? What is our responsibility? GlobalInfographic.pdf

    Oh , I love Tianjin!! I was in Beijing 北京 from 2004-2011, and Yantai, Shandong 2015-17. We took the bullet train from 北京 to Tianjin in its first 90 days -- quick, beautiful, and elegant in an oddly Olde World kind of way.
