21st century education 

I believe that, globally, educators should focus more on the students than themselves. Not that they are not important but the reason why they go to school is to change the mind and heart of the students. 

It is important to be a global minded educator because as an educator, you get a lot of opportunities to travel all around the world and inspire other educators and students across the globe. 

You can’t afford to struggle solving educational inequalities because through the teaching and learning your heart and mind is changed. The love of the children will result to the love of your profession and you will understand that as a teacher you are not there as an expert or dictator but an instructor.
