When I first picked up Worldly Teachers, I had just finished teaching a summer course in a MA-TESOL program in southern Brazil, and had just begun a year of teaching undergraduate courses in Communication and Media Studies in Madrid, Spain. Not surprisingly, I found the book fascinating and useful. Martha Hawkes Germain writes about six veteran U.S. teachers who have studied about, taught, and lived abroad, arguing that intensive international experience profoundly affects a teacher's life and work. She includes reflections about culture shock, friendships across borders, fundamental personal transformation, pedagogical issues, and school reform. It is a valuable book for any teacher who has had or hopes to have a similar experience.
