Global education projects or initiatives in which you are involved (if applicable):
I recently returned from the TeachME conference in Dubai, where I was able to collaborate with educators from around the world. In 2008. I participated in an education technology delegation to China. I was able to tour a primary school, high school, university, and a very remote school in the Changiao Village. I kept a blog of my journey at http://sites.epals.com/china_stubbs/ . It was a very powerful experience.
