Rural Educators Across Borders


Rural Educators Across Borders is a multi-organization collaboration, designed to create a digital platform to allow collaboration with and storytelling from rural educators across the world.

Based on discussions by early career teachers in the United States and Wales, there are three primary topics to frame the Rural Educators Across Borders discussion: Resiliency, Pedagogy, and Teaching in Place.

Thanks to our founding partners, Welsh Government, Princess of Girona Foundation in Spain, and Teton Science Schools.

Podcast Feature: Fredrick Mugalula

When we look to teachers from around the world, we’re not only given an opportunity to appreciate our unique differences, but also to recognize what we share in common. That moment of recognition can be transformative in the effort to strengthen our rural schools and towns.

In this spirit, this episode of the I Am A Rural Teacher podcast features Fredrick Mugalula, an elementary teacher from southern Uganda and an early member of Rural Educators Across Borders.
