Westhill teacher on a Fulbright Distinguished Award in Research
Ruth Walden, an English teacher, will be in Glasgow, Scotland on a Fulbright Distinguished Award in Research. For six months Ms. Walden will study at the University of Glasgow (one of 24 Russell Group Universities), engage with academics, research the educational initiatives in Scottish State Schools and interface with educational colleagues on global best practices for developing curriculum that engages diverse student populations. Ms. Walden also hopes to speak with the diverse student populations throughout the United Kingdom about educational content that matters to them most; i.e., What do you want to see in your classrooms? This is her second Fulbright as Ms. Walden spent last summer on a Fulbright Hays to Hungary.
“I feel very honored to have been selected for this award and it wouldn't have been possible without the colleagues that I have here who support me at Westhill and throughout the district.” Ms. Walden.
