Lori Locklear, one of the educators on World View’s Global Study Visit to China, detailed some of her feelings and experiences in an article for The Robesonian.
Lori, who was the Teacher of the Year for the Public Schools of Robeson County, teaches exceptional children in sixth, seventh and eighth grades.
“It was eye-opening to realize that the educators and teachers in China were experiencing similar educational successes and problems that we have in the United States. They were welcoming and friendly to us. It was extraordinary to be able to communicate with educators across the world,” she said. “I want our community to know we have more in common with people in China than we do differences. We build upon those differences to make the education field a better profession.”
