Thank you for a wonderful experience. The event was my first with the World Affairs Council and it was very enriching for me. The speakers’ information was great and I used it the next day in my classes. These kinds of opportunities are so rare for teachers and I was very impressed by the quality and professionalism of the event. The speakers gave a lot of insight into topics that we don’t get to hear about regularly. Being at tables of teachers was also nice for me so that I could network and hear other perspectives. - Social Studies Teacher, Oakland Catholic High School
