Hi Helen Potter,
Thank you very much for becoming my friend here. I am honored with your availability to share. Since I saw your interest in women and children issue, it has very close relationship with my work in Aceh. As I have been working for this work since 1990. ( It was wrong in my previous message I said 2000, actually I wanted to say 1990). I have got various interesting experiences. You know? When we invite women to join training, it is not easy for women to attend. The problem is domestic affair which can not be away from their mind and responsibility. Therefore, in most cases, women cannot attend the training. Even they can attend it, but they must bring their children to the training center. It is one of the realities. Do you find this in your place?
Dear Helen Porter,
I would like to introduce you that I am Tabrani Yunis, Dirrctor Center for Community Development and Education (CCDE) Banda Aceh, Indonesia. I have been working for women issue since 2000 until now. Through CCDE, I empower and strengthen women, female youths and children by alternative education and building entrepreneurship for women and female youths in Aceh. Now I am building Acehnese women writing habit through creative writing training and publishing POTRET magazine where women from the grassroots become as the contributors. I am honored to learn from your expertise and experiences.
I am honored that you chose little old me to be your friend. Friendship is, in my opinion, one of the highest relationships that society can bestow on another individual. I will, if I may say, cherish that relationship. On a sidebar, my mother, who is now deceased, was a New York City Teacher.....Correction...Facilitator...of first grade students in Queens. She had been awarded the title of ' Teacher of the Year ' twice in her lifetime. I owe part of my decision to become a facilitator to her. My mother taught gifted children in P.S. 221, a K-6 school in Little Neck. May I ask you what got you interested in the education field? The main stimulus for me to get into the discipline was ' the need '. I felt that there was a need to help people understand concepts, whether old or new. There are other people in my distant family that are also involved with education. My cousin, who passed 7 years ago, was a principal of a high school in New York.
My other cousin who lives in Florida was a college professor in Hunter. What in your opinion is the most important factor in the improvement of pedagogical and/or administrative practice in the USA? By the way, one of my formulae, which is copyrighted is the following: E=mc2. Simply, it stands for Education equals the facilitation of the minds understanding times collective compassion. My definition of compassion is based on the concept of the teacher being moved by the students understandings drawn from his/her experiences. Do you agree?
I am also an educator.....correction.....facilitator. i work as a UN Advisor of Global Education through The International Agency for Economic Development. In 2008, I was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for " networking global education administrators in order to understand other cultures, countries and specifically individuals in order to create a sustained peace ". I agree with your understanding of public policy affecting universal primary education. I have given numerous speeches in various countries including China, Australia, Jordan, Siberia, Canada and England. In May, I was asked to participate in a symposium/conference that encompassed the improvement of the education of public administrators in Russia. In October of this year I am giving a conference in Copiapo, Chile also encompassing the improvement of the education practices of that country. I have created over 150 different theories, formulae and practica in order to accomplish that task. I am interested in having a continued dialogue with you concerning the practice of pedagogy using some of your thoughts. You can find a little bit about me at www.iaed.org/global.ed.
