OSUE Teacher Named Fulbright Award Recipient
Ocean Springs Upper Elementary’s Allison Peters is the newest recipient of the esteemed Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms Program Award. As a Fulbright recipient, Peters will share knowledge and foster meaningful connections across communities in the United States and abroad.
Fulbrighters engage in cutting-edge research and expand their professional networks, often continuing research collaborations started abroad and laying the groundwork for forging future partnerships between institutions.
“I love to challenge myself and try new things to bring back to my students,” Peters says. “I will take a course in international studies and study abroad during the summer while working on collaborative research. Eventually, I’ll share my experiences and establish networks with my community to help promote global learning.”
Upon returning to their classrooms in the United States, Fulbright Scholars will share their stories and often become active supporters of international exchange, inviting foreign scholars and educators to their school or campus and encouraging their colleagues and students to go abroad.
As Fulbright alumni, their careers are enriched by joining a network of thousands of esteemed scholars, many of whom are leaders in their fields. Fulbright alumni include 60 Nobel Prize laureates, 89 Pulitzer Prize recipients, and 39 who have served as a head of state or government.
