VIDEO: WHS Spanish Teacher Terresa Pietro Discusses Her Fulbright Teacher Award

WILMINGTON, MA — Watch the latest episode of “Talk of the Town” from WCTV featuring quick, feel-good stories from around town.

In this episode, host Bob Boyce interviews Wilmington High School Spanish Teacher Terresa Pietro, who recently received a ‘Fulbright Teachers For Global Classrooms’ Scholarship. Pietro discusses the scholarship program, a grant-funded year-long professional development experience with four pieces — (1) 10-week online global education course, (2) symposium, (3) 2-3-week international field experience, and (4) creation of a global education resource guide for other Wilmington teachers. Pietro hopes to have the opportunity to visit a Latin American country for her field experience.

“Everything I am learning will benefit my students in the end,” noted Pietro. “I’m currently learning strategies, resources and technologies that I can implement in my teaching to help my students better develop their global competence.”
