Nancy Commins, senior instructor (clinical professor) in the Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education Program at University of Colorado Denver’s School of Education & Human Development was the keynote speaker at the 2014 Teacher in Europe Conference themed “Open Your Mind, Open Your Classroom” which was held at Fontys University on April 14, 15 and 16, 2014 in Sittard in the Netherlands.
Commins was chosen to speak because she is an expert in the field of cross-cultural/multicultural education. Commins spoke to 450 teacher candidates from five different countries. Her keynote was titled “Teachers in a Multicultural World: The Joy of the Journey.”
“It was a thrill to be able to interact with so many teachers in training from all over Europe and receive such a positive response to the message of the talk. It
would be wonderful for our teacher candidates at CU Denver to be able to make
contact with their counterparts in other countries.”
