The Teacher Roundtable was an outstanding intellectual and social opportunity. It afforded educators the chance to interact with foreign dignitaries and ask important questions regarding the future of international affairs and foreign policy with the EU and the next presidential administration... I left with critical information to analyze our relationship with this growing network of states and how we can forge common alliances in the future. Thank you World Affairs Council for providing professional growth opportunities for teachers that are provocative, relevant, and entertaining!
