For six weeks, Winthrop University and Rock Hill schools hosted 17 teachers from around the world who immersed themselves in classroom style and culture of educators in the United States.
The international teachers represented 14 countries including India and Russia and countries in South America and Africa.
Teachers paired up with local educators at Rock Hill high schools to exchange best practices and classroom experiences.
The visiting group also took trips to Charlotte, Charleston and Asheville, N.C.
Winthrop’s initiative was paid for through a $177,000 grant from the U.S. State Department's Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program.
This year was the second time for Winthrop to host international teachers.
