How did you hear about us and a few words why you want to join EBB:
I initially learned of Teachers Without Borders from one of my professors at the University of Toronto where I am currently studying towards my Ph.D.
One of my areas of focus for the doctorate is 'Comparative, International and Development Education,' so it makes good sense for me to become a member of Teachers Without Borders as a tangible way of extending my scholarly learning to the global community, to putting theory into practice.
I consent to receiving important information including news, publications and invitations to programs and events.
