LARC Master Teacher awarded Teachers for Global Classrooms Fellowship

August 24th, 2016

Aaron Forbes, a LARC Master Teacher, and a Spanish Teacher at Morris Jeff Community School has been chosen as a member of the 2016-2017 cohort of teachers for the Teachers for Global Classrooms program.

The program, funded by the U.S. State Department, is a year-long professional development opportunity which aims to bring international perspectives to schools through experience abroad and collaboration with teachers in other countries. Through the program Aaron will complete a course on globalizing classrooms and curriculum, attend a workshop with other Fellows in Washington D.C., and travel to another country to experience their education system.

Aaron learned about the program at the 2015 Global Education Forum, a trip which was partially funded by LARC.
