PERRYSBURG - Earlier this month, 20 outstanding secondary school teachers from 17 countries met the community at Perrysburg Junior High School.
They shared information about their cultures and schools, as well as their experience in America, at an open house held March 13.
Through a grant, the Bowling Green State University International Democratic Education Institute welcomed the group on Feb. 1 to further develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the United States. 
These teachers have been participating in professional development workshops with a heavy focus on classroom technology. They have been going out into area schools to co-teach in an American classroom. They also have experienced American culture with trips to Toledo, Detroit, Chicago and/or New York City.
Before returning home, the teachers headed to Washington, D.C., to share their experiences with other Teaching Excellence and Achievement (TEA) program fellows from other universities.
