Welcome to TCKI Education Blog… My name is Bethanie S. I’d like to start by sharing a little of my background. I am an Elementary Education and Bilingual/ESL certified teacher and have a masters degree in School Counseling. I was a classroom teacher in both traditional and homeschool settings. I worked as a school counselor for elementary through high school, aided in school administration, and assisted students with special needs. I had the joy to serve and minister as the TCKI office coordinator from 2003 to 2008. I have been a TCK for over 30 years and am currently in the role of Executive Dean of TCK Education for TCKI. TCKI Education Blog will have posts from me, our education consultants, and other experts in the field. The goal is to provide you with current, overseas educational trends and information. We also want to be a tool and a resource for your TCK’s educational needs. We know that when living abroad one of the main things your family considers is where your child will go to school and the overall effect that your schooling choice will have on your child’s future. These are the two main questions most frequently asked by parents when they are processing overseas education options.
- What is the perfect schooling option for my TCK?
- Am I going to mess up my TCK by educating them oversees?
- Your TCK’s unique character
- developmental age
- grade-level performance
- learning styles
- the culture in which you live
- the options available to you in that country.
