#globalclassroom Teacher’s Stories: Rawya Shatila, Lebanon

One of the true joys of my work with this project is the opportunity to meet, and work with amazing educators all over the world. This is the first of what I hope will be a long-term series of posts, where I’ll introduce you to some of our Global Classroom teachers, and share their inspiring stories with the world.

Rawya Shatila @rawyashatila 

Rawya works at the Makassed  Schools in Beirut, Lebanon, and was involved in global education long before we met through the Global Classroom Project. With an impressive list of national and international awards, Rawya is dedicated to helping her young charges learn, share, and connect with the wider world; and has personally taught me a great deal.

Rawya was recognised as one of our inaugural Global Classroom Lead Teachers in 2012, and blogs at Young Clovers. I am looking forward to the day when we finally manage to meet f2f.

Here are a few glimpses into her classrooms:

  1. It has been my pleasure to work with Rawya on City Art project .. her enthusiasm is infectious. she is one of the most creative and innovative teachers i have known

    • Hi Sandhya. Meeting teachers like Rawya really makes me wish I was a classroom teacher – in a better position to work with her to help broaden our students’ understanding of the world around us.

      Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment 🙂
