Commitment to a Global Community
Global Playground’s Teaching Fellows spend a year teaching at one of Global Playground’s project sites. They work to facilitate cross-cultural dialogue using local curriculum and develop the Global Playground community by connecting students to one another at our different sites. Since the Fellow Program began in July 2010, Teaching Fellows have developed innovative curriculum that is used in classrooms across the world. You can learn more about these initiatives here.

She desires to continue this focus on community development with Global Playground, and aspires to a future career in health education and health policy reform.
