    Welcome, we try to keep politics out of introductions.

    Internationalism, tends to impose the will of one nation upon another at some point.

    Then you weren't paying attention to them.

    All you got out of being a teacher offshore, was that you're a good teacher? That's what you got out of it? You didn't learn anything from them?

    You shouldn't be teaching important subjects like that, if you're just there to mansplain.

    Jus sayin...

    I'm not mean-spirited at all, usually. I'm sorry if it came out that way. It's the Trump in me... :)

    Just wondering what you picked up from living and working with people in other countries. There has to be more than becoming a better teacher, because you were helping kids in need in foreign lands.

    So I guess my question is, how they made you better. Because that's enlightening stuff... And that's the stuff I like to hear about.

    To be a better teacher is to better understand the curriculum and how it needs to be adapted or modified to meet the requirements of the students in order to prepare them for academic success and their future in their work. It means becoming aware of local culture and how it facilitates learning. It is all somewhat complicated.

    Welcome. This place is more like WWE Smackdown than a "debate" forum though. :meow:

    Since you were a teacher, you might want to check out the education forum.

    Sorry, but that's still a very cold, bland answer. For a teacher of kids.

    That's why I questioned you in the first place...

    They had nothing in their culture to teach you? They were just students that you tried to train using the training skills you learned?

    Nothing about their life, or the hardships they face, and how we can all learn something here in America from them?

    I'm now starting to question you... And I don't care if I sound rude. I now think you're full of BS, to be honest. Jus sayin...
