Sometimes to Dance and Always to Connect
Cicchelli, Kate
Schools: Studies in Education, v8 n1 p52-59 Spr 2011
An American teacher describes her journey to Ghana, where she worked in the summer of 2009 at the Tuskegee International School. Through recollections of the relationships she established during her time teaching math to students ages 6-16, the author reveals that her most powerful role while there was that of student rather than teacher. Focusing on themes of connection and learning, the article reveals the potent and poetic nature of discovering just how small and connected our world is so far from home. (Contains 7 figures.)
