The concept of Third Culture Kids (TCKs), children who follow their globetrotting parents around the world, is not a new one and has been widely studied. However, there is one specific group of TCKs who have, until now, been largely ignored - EdKids, the children of international school educators. In this new work, Dr Ettie Zilber brings together all the material she has collected over many years of research on this unique group and allows them to voice their own opinions, feelings and stories for the first time. Spanning a long career in education, Dr Ettie Zilber has served at international schools and other educational centers in the US, Israel, Singapore, Spain, Guatemala and China, served on the boards of ECIS and AISH, presented and published on cross-cultural themes and served as an Adjunct Professor for Lehigh University and Endicott College, teaching courses in Comparative Education and Intercultural Communication.

Purpose: This research aims to explore the lived experience of Saudi "third culture kids" (TCKs) and how those children, as well as their parents and teachers, describe their experiences as children growing up between different cultures. Method: This research applies a phenomenological multiple case studies to a sample of three children aged (7-10) years, three parents, and three homeroom teachers. Data is collected from the participants as follows: questionnaire and open-ended one-on-one interviews with parents, a photo-elicitation along with open-ended interview with children, and written interview with teachers. Having multiple perspectives is intended to manifest the essence of the experience of acculturation of Saudi third culture kids and to illustrate how these children identify themselves and make meaning of their experience and the role of their parents and teachers in cultural adaptation. Results: The findings showed that Saudi TCKs have positive cultural adaptation during their lived experience, developing their identities as Saudis Muslims and Arab with developing bicultural perspective. Roles of Saudi parents and American teachers as they enhance cultural adaptation are discussed. Recommendations and implications of the research are provided. Keywords: Third culture kids, TCK, cross-cultural kids, acculturation, Saudis in the U.S, Saudi children, Muslims, Arabs, childhood, cultural identity, adaptation.
