Daily Staff Report

WINCHESTER -- Nearly two dozen educators from outside the United States plan to visit Sherando High School next week.

The group is participating in the U.S. State Department's Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program through the Center for International Education at George Mason University, according to a press release from Frederick County Public Schools issued Friday. The 22 educators in the group represent Bangladesh, Cambodia, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Ghana, India, Jordan, Lithuania, Morocco, Nicaragua, Oman, Poland, Romania, Ukraine and Venezuela.

While visiting Sherando on Wednesday the participants will learn about the high school's history and demographics as well as special programs offered at the facility. The group will conclude the visit with a tour of the school.

Participants plan to then visit the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley in Winchester after seeing the school.

The program brings secondary teachers from the Near East, Eurasia, Southeast Asia, Africa and Latin America to the United States to further develop expertise in their subject areas, the release states.

The program consists of six weeks of coursework in teaching methodologies and strategies, lesson planning, leadership and instructional technology. Additionally the participants spend more than 40 hours working with a U.S. partner-teacher, according to the release.
