Facilitator Bios

Dr. Ariel Tichnor-Wagner is a faculty member in the Educational Leadership and Policy Studies department at the Boston University Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. Her research and teaching focus on education policy and program implementation, school improvement, global citizenship education, and civic education. Having begun her career as an elementary school teacher of immigrant students in a low-income urban school district, Ariel is deeply committed to identifying and supporting the implementation of effective policies and practices that improve the academic and social-emotional outcomes of culturally and linguistically diverse students.

She previously worked as the Senior Fellow of Global Competence at ASCD, where she developed evidence-based tools and resources to help educators build capacity for globally competent teaching and learning. She has collaborated with the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. State Department, various state departments of education, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the National Education Association (NEA) Foundation, and an array of other non-governmental organizations on issues related to global competence and educational change. She is the author of two books, Becoming a Globally Competent Teacher and Becoming a Globally Competent School Leader, and her research on global competence, education policy development and implementation, and school improvement has appeared in a variety of academic journals and popular media outlets.

Carley Goodkind is a high school German language educator with over 23 years of experience. She serves as a Global Scholars Program Co-Coordinator in her school district. She received the 2020 Teacher of the Year award from the Wisconsin Association for Language Teachers and the 2021-2022 Wisconsin Global Educator of the Year from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. Curiosity and an insatiable desire to learn are at the heart of her practice. Her passion is designing learning experiences that lead students to discover themselves, their communities, and the world, preparing them for futures not yet imagined. She loves collaborating with others to innovate and advocate for global competence and strong, effective K-16+ world language programs.

Danielle Chaussée is a National Board Certified Spanish teacher and the Global Scholars Program Coordinator at Oconomowoc High School. She was a Teachers for Global Classrooms Fellow with the US Department of State in 2017 when she learned about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the concept of “glocal”, two core ideas that have grounded her teaching ever since. In 2020, Ms. Chaussée received the Wisconsin K-12 Energy Education Program’s award for Energy Educator of the Year, along with an AP Environmental Science colleague, for their classroom partnership with the Citizens Utility Board of Wisconsin. Ms. Chaussée was also named as the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction’s 2020-2021 Wisconsin Global Educator of the Year. Ms. Chaussée believes in inspiring action; she collaborates with colleagues and connects with community partners to provide her students with the skills and opportunities to become globally competent agents of change.
