Based on the foregoing statements, I consider myself as globally incompetent and myperspective in life and career lies only in domestic undertakings. All my hardship in teachingfocuses on producing graduates who are globally competent – ready to face the economicbattle of the world ahead. However, these efforts are baseless since I was not able to providemy students both in Senior High School and College with enough global knowledge whichhelps them understand the complexity of the world. I am guilty of failing to travel elsewhere, abroad, or even places around my country.For a record, the farthest place I traveled is only Butuan City who just a few hours from myresidence in Balingasag, Misamis Oriental. As mentioned by Dr. Percy Richardson, a globalteacher is a traveler wherein experiences can be shared first-hand to the students who havenot been traveled abroad, and help them understand lessons clearly through teacher's actualforeign experiences. Although there are many social media platforms or web applicationsthat can help you experienced places and research about foreign cultures, norms, and valuesvia the internet, these are not authentic, realistic compare to your actual foreign visit. If givenenough financial resources and time, I will travel around the Philippines and other foreigncountries like China, Italy, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, and the United States to explore,discover and experience their vast cultures and traditions which could help future educationendeavors.Traveling in different places aids learning. This is the reason why our professor, Dr.Teresita T. Tumapon of Liceo de Cagayan University can elaborate her discussion inIntercultural Leadership and Global Perspective because of her adequate foreign experiences,particularly in Germany. For all class members who have not been to Germany can pictureout vividly the cultural perspectives of the German leaders against Philippine leaders andother foreign leaders or people through her observation or experiences in the country whereshe studied Literature.For classroom learning materials, I have learned that local resources such as textbooksare good but insufficient to provide global information for local students. References must bevaried, diverse and introduce both local and foreign context. In this way, students cancompare and contrast different perspectives across borders and help students thinkanalytically, critically and creatively. This makes learning fun, holistic and ensures that globalknowledge is being channeled appropriately.Global Filipino teachers are leaders also, in the classroom. We sometimes act liketransactional leaders whose main job is to keep our classroom afloat. We use disciplinaryactions and an array of incentives to motivate students to perform at their best in academics.We also oftentimes behave like transformational leaders whose function focuses on team-building, motivation, and collaboration with students at different learning readiness toaccomplish change for the better. We used different leadership styles to suit to learning stylesof the students.Will you take the risk to think out of the Box for your learners to do the same?
As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
