We must dare to think ‘unthinkable’ thoughts. We must learn to explore all the options and possibilities that confront us in a complex and rapidly changing world.

 -J. William Fulbright


I had the privilege of teaching, living, and learning in Podgorica, Montenegro as a recipient of a Fulbright English Language Teaching Assistantship from 2013-2014. While there, I taught multiple courses at the University of Montenegro; facilitated a variety of cultural and leadership programs at the U.S. Department of State’s three American Corners Libraries in the country; and built friendships that will last a lifetime.


The mission of the Fulbright Program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of the United States and those of other countries.  I am forever grateful for my Fulbright experience and continue to advocate for the importance of person-to-person diplomacy and the critical work of Fulbright. Please feel free to connect with me if you have any questions about my experience or read my advice piece on Profellow – Teaching Abroad: Insights From Fulbright ETA Fellow Kate Poisson.
