English Language Fellow Program

Mrs. Jane George, English Language Fellow

One of North Kingstown's ELL teachers, Mrs. George, is currently participating in the English Language Fellow Program sponsored by the U.S. Dept. of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
"Through the English Language Fellow (EL Fellow) Program, highly qualified U.S. educators in the field of Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) or Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) participate in 10-month-long fellowships at academic institutions throughout the world.
The EL Fellow Program fosters mutual understanding, promotes English language learning and enhances English teaching capacity abroad. Through projects sponsored by U.S. embassies, EL Fellows share their professional expertise, hone their skills, gain international experience and learn about other cultures.  EL Fellows model and demonstrate up-to-date TEFL classroom practices that help foster thoughtful and responsible behavior in students and teachers of English."
