No matter what career you are in, being globally aware can be a major asset to success. As an educator, I think being globally engaged is one of the most important skills I can acquire. I have to be prepared to deal with children from various backgrounds and cultures, and being globally engaged will only aid me in that endeavor. One of my biggest goals as a teacher is to make my students feel comfortable in my classroom, and make them accepting of one another. I think learning about the various cultures that my students may be involved in will definitely help me be more understanding and accepting of them myself, and will help me teach my students to be as well.
