New Futures Teacher Selected for Global Classroom Program

Mary Rafferty is among 82 teachers nationally who will participate in program that provides teachers the opportunity to explore global education.

Mary Rafferty, a Language Arts teacher from New Futures School, was selected for the Teachers for Global Classrooms (TGC) program. Over 400 teachers applied from 33 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, and she is among 82 teachers who were selected for participation.

The goal of the TGC program is to provide teachers with the opportunity to explore the themes and applications for global education in the U.S. secondary school classroom. As a part of TGC, she will participate in an online professional development course, attend a Global Education Symposium in Washington, DC, travel on an international fellowship for a two or three week in-country visit, and be eligible for alumni professional development sessions and micro grants. As a part of this in-country fellowship, she will have the opportunity to visit schools, classrooms, and meet with teachers and educational leaders. She will also have ample opportunity to share her culture and experience with host country colleagues, and gain new insights to share with her home school and community.

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs is the primary funding source and sponsor of this program. IREX (International Research & Exchanges Board) implements the program on behalf of the Department of State.
