The National Museum of American Diplomacy highlighted the Fulbright Teacher Program in honor of its 75th anniversary. With a guest speaker from the Teacher Exchange Branch in the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Kayla Gatalica, they discussed the mission of Fulbright Teacher Exchanges and the impact it has on teachers and students in the United States and around the world. They explored how teachers can take advantage of exchange opportunities and become diplomats, inspiring a global outlook and global competence in their students. Turtle Haste, a Teacher Exchange alum who traveled to the Republic of Georgia joined the discussion to reflect on her experiences.
Diplomacy Classroom is a monthly virtual event presented by the National Museum of American Diplomacy where we explore diplomacy through a historical event, person, or contemporary global issue.
