A couple traveling around the world : many classroom stories along the way.
When we find ourselves on our way to a school or a classroom, even as children, we know that inside that space there is a person who dedicates their life to teaching. A person who our parents, the parents of our friends, professionals everywhere and almost all of society lays expectations on.
For many different reasons, we are all able to remember the name of at least one teacher who has left a mark in our lives. This means that the vast majority of people who follow the formal course of education and creates a career out of it will, in several moments of their lives, be touched by unforgettable teachers.
Teachers of the World is a project that wants to give a voice to teachers and educators all over the world, to know their life stories and the uniqueness of their teaching method, their plans and expectations for the future of their students and of education itself.
Our initiative is made possible by three elements: open ears, approachable souls and intellect. These factors can transform lives through communication, the exchange of experiences and the creation and strengthening of the ties between the teachers of the world and the society they help educate.
In order to do that, we've traveled the world listening to teachers elaborating a way to tell their stories, to bring them to the center of discussions regarding education and to show how each person builds, thanks to the teacher’s work, the kind of society that we are searching for.
Now, we are back in Brazil, but our journey is just beginning...
The teachers we interview are people we know, people our friends know, unknown people we are still to meet and acquaintances we actually knew nothing about. And we need all the help we can get to find these storytellers. If you are a teacher or know someone who is and will cross paths with us, send us a message.
