Teachers across Borders (Aired Dec. 18, 2009)
Professional educators Tom and Sue Mounkhall, volunteers for Teachers across Borders (TAB), discuss the valuable work done by this nonprofit organization. TAB’s original purpose was to assist Cambodia in reconstructing its teaching corps, which was destroyed by the country’s turmoil. TAB provides teacher workshops with expert educators from Australia, the U.S. and the U.K., inspired by the belief that education is key to solving many of the world’s problems including poverty, disease, and child trafficking. The Mounkhalls describe their experiences teaching Cambodian colleagues in Battambang best classroom practices, collaboration techniques, and content.
