Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) Program

UNCW has proudly hosted cohorts of Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) fellows in the Spring 2019 and 2020 terms.  The Fulbright TEA program provides opportunities for international secondary school teachers to further expertise in the teaching of English as a Foreign Language, Science, or Math, enhances their abilities in student-centered inquiry and project-based teaching and instructional design and assessment, and helps teachers develop important skills in teacher-leadership to support their work across their teaching careers.

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

The program also includes a field experience at public schools in Wilmington. In field sites, fellows teach in an American classroom setting, paired with an experienced U.S. partner teacher. In addition, fellows engage in a variety of civic and cultural activities including a historic Wilmington tour, artistic and cultural excursions, 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.
