While some GECP students have plans to begin a teaching career abroad, many do not have plans to teach outside of the United States. GECP students are eager to learn how to prepare their future students for success as global citizens of the 21st Century. Many GECP students are also interested in extra preparation for how to give the best education possible to all students, including students in their classroom who are from other countries or cultural backgrounds or who do not speak English as their first language.
In fact, one of the primary goals of GECP is to prepare future educators to bring the world to their students, wherever their classrooms happen to be and whatever subject they happen to teach. GECP graduates will be specially prepared to show their students how the world around them affects and is affected by what they do and learn.
