What is the Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange Program?
The Fulbright Classroom Teacher Exchange Program offered educators the opportunity to exchange teaching positions with a teacher from another country for one semester or academic year. By living and working abroad, Fulbright Teachers improved their understanding and appreciation of another culture and education system. With this enhanced awareness, participants expanded the global perspectives of students and colleagues in their home and host communities and positively impacted the quality of classroom instruction. The program was open to teachers from the United States and selected countries in multiple world regions.
