The NEA Foundation’s Salute to Excellence in Education Gala is known as the Academy Awards for educators. The 2013 awardees were also given a chance of a lifetime. As part of the Foundation’s Global Learning Fellowship program, the 38 recipients of the Award for Teaching Excellence visited Brazil over the summer for a 10-day pedagogical and competence-building tour of that nation’s education system.
In partnership with the Foundation, Rosetta Stone® provided each fellow access to Rosetta Stone TOTALe® PRO, the world’s leading-language learning program, to empower them with language skills before embarking on the tour. TOTALe® PRO helped the educators reach a new level of communication and understanding in the Portuguese language—just like it does in thousands of schools around the country—enabling them to better share and learn from their Brazilian hosts.
We hope you enjoy following these educators on their journey to Brazil!

Educators today face challenges and opportunities unique to our increasingly globalized world and evolving technologies. Every day educators carry the torch to ensure students are prepared to thrive in the world in which they’ll live, work, and ideally succeed. Preparing them with the skills they need is critical. We empowered them and celebrated them on their journey. And to that end, a few of these intrepid educators shared their tales with us through a series of blog posts. Hear first-hand how a global mindset impacts these teachers, their trip, and their work.
