Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program

In Spring 2019, the Teaching Excellence and Achievement program, a program of the U.S. Department of State Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and implemented by IREX, will provide unique opportunities to further expertise in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language or Math for 20 Fellows, enhance their abilities in student-centered inquiry and project-based teaching and instructional design and assessment, and help them to develop important skills in teacher-leadership to support their work across their teaching careers.

Fellows will spend six weeks at UNCW, engaged in a common core of teaching-related classes, technology classes, and discipline-specific sessions in Math or English teaching.

The program also includes a field experience within one of four public schools in Wilmington. In field sites, Fellows will teach in an American classroom setting, paired with an experienced U.S. partner teacher. In addition, fellows will engage in a variety of civic and cultural activities including a historic Wilmington tour, trips to see live music, museums, sporting events, an International Potluck, and a weekend trip to Charleston! All fellows are paired with a Friendship Family who will invite them to their home to share cultures.

The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (Fulbright TEA) Program is a  program sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by IREX.
