Lisa Petro

Co-founder of Know My World/Global Education Specialist

I am the co-founder of Know My World, a global education organization built by teachers for teachers, which offers programs and professional development for digital cross-cultural exchange and social, emotional and cultural learning. I am also an educational consultant specializing in curriculum development, teacher training, evaluation, and assessment for Global Education and Intercultural Competence. With 20 years of experience in education, and having worked with over 24 countries through cultural competence programs, I believe that all learners should be recognized as capable and relevant. Effective learning spaces, projects, and programs are one's that are culturally inclusive, experiential and embrace critical thought.
