(episode in English / 英文)

Fully-packed episode with David Tan, who became an educator after learning about educational inequities. He's on a mission to help third-culture kids discern identity. He was born in the US and attended international schools in Asia in his middle and high school years. He returned to the US to attend college at The Ohio State, triple majoring in Chinese, political science and economics. After deciding to pursue education instead of law, he went to the University of Michigan for his Master's. He then taught social studies in Detroit, Nigeria, and Vietnam.

這集是與 David 分享他了解美國城市教育不平等,讓他想去當老師。他的目的是幫助第三文化的孩子辨認身份,能過認識自己。他出生於美國,初中和高中期間搬到亞洲讀國際學校。 他回到美國上俄亥俄州立大學,主修中文,政治學和經濟學三門專業。 在決定追求教育而不是法律之後,他去了密歇根大學攻讀碩士學位。 然後,他在底特律,尼日利亞和越南教社會研究。
