Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program

Ten US teachers visit Uruguay for cultural and educational sharing.

July 4, 2004

 


Continuing the link between Uruguayan and American teachers, 10 U.S. teachers will arrive in Uruguay July 11. The teachers’ four-week visit is part of the Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program.

Due to Uruguayan schools being closed for winter holidays during the first week of their visit, the teachers are scheduled to participate in a series of cultural and academic activities, including participating in a two-day seminar on bilingual education for Uruguayan teachers.

For the remainder of their visit the teachers will visit Uruguayan Public Schools in the provinces, visiting principals and/or teachers who participated in the past exchange programs in the U.S. They will stay with the principals and teachers of the schools or with teachers of the Alianzas in the interior.

A welcome reception is scheduled for Sunday, July 11, at the Best Western Palladium Hotel. Uruguayan principals and teachers who have participated in the Exchange Program will also attend.
