Rural Educators Across Borders is a multi-organization collaboration, designed to create a digital platform to allow collaboration with and storytelling from rural educators across the world.
Based on discussions by early career teachers in the United States and Wales, there are three primary topics to frame the Rural Educators Across Borders discussion: Resiliency, Pedagogy, and Teaching in Place.
