A Thank You from Saliha
Frankly speaking, I’m still day dreaming about the planned and organized conference in Marrakech, Morocco. A conference attended by young and old from various parts of the world, I loved the real global collaboration and global citizenship. The projects extended the scope of my professional abilities. We shared to be global teachers and global learners, curious and open to different cultures. We enriched our teaching experiences by incorporating global issue topics into the lessons. Attending morning conferences and evening workshop sessions was of great importance to our professional development.
On the behalf of all the iEARN participants of the year 2016-2017; I would like to express my gratitude to the team of iEARN in general. I haven’t stopped thinking about how warm and how open the participants were. The organizers and all the attendees were at each day of the conference. It was wonderful to be among kindred souls for a brief time.
