Two Alabama teachers have been selected to participate in the Toyota International Teacher Program and will spend two weeks this summer studying in Japan.
Toyota made the announcement today.
Selected from a pool of national applicants, Chelonnda Seroyer, an English teacher from Bob Jones High School in Madison, will travel through rural and urban Japan from Tokyo to central Honshu June 22 through July 7. She will learn about Japan's past and present, explore global issues and experience the culture firsthand.
Joining Seroyer on the tour is alumnus John Griffin, an algebra, trigonometry and statistics teacher from Walter Wellborn High School in Anniston, who returns to Japan this year to help mentor members of the new group.
