Stephanie Call is the Education Specialist, World Language for the Office of Teaching, Learning, and Assessment at the Nebraska Department of Education.
Fulbright Alumni Experience: U.S.-Uruguay Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program 2007
I was the Technology Integration specialist in a team of ten US educators who traveled to Uruguay to share about the US educational system. Unfortunately at that time, Uruguay had minimal technology available in schools. Instead of being an expert, I became a student who learned that great teaching involves higher-level thinking strategies, real-life experiences, and participatory student engagement. This experience changed my classroom. It inspired my colleagues to change their classrooms. Now, because of my leadership in teaching, I work with the 900+ world language educators in our state in ways that impact their classrooms.
