A Step Towards World Peace
"I got to know more about [the people I met here], their culture, their history, the things they believed, and because of this, I understand [now] why they behave the way they do. I think it is a very important step towards world peace." - Francisca, from India on the Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program.
Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program (TEA) targets English secondary school teachers from all over the world (English, Math and Social Studies). They go the U.S. high schools twice a week for around five weeks, observing American teacher and students in their classrooms. They go to the U.S. high schools for a total of about 40 hours during the six weeks of their program.
"If I understand why they do something, and a student questions me, it really helps to someday integrate the entire world." - Francisca, India. Click here for more information on TEA.
