Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (FTEA) program 

The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) is one of seven universities in the US selected to host a six-week Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) Program for 21 secondary school teachers. Fulbright TEA participants foster positive interactions with Americans throughout their time in the United States, especially in American classrooms.

All program participants have opportunities to observe, co-teach, and share their expertise in U.S. secondary schools. They are master teachers of English, English as a foreign language, science, mathematics, and social studies, including special education in those subject areas.

Fulbright TEA is funded by the U.S. government, supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State, and administered by IREX. The Global Engagement Office and the School of Education are collaborating to implement the program at the UNCG campus. More information on the FTEA program can be found on the IREX website.
