North Platte middle school teacher Lori Brouillette has received the Distinguished Fulbright Award in Teaching.

Brouillette will receive a grant to conduct research in Argentina. She is one of approximately 19 U.S. citizens who will travel abroad in 2011-2012 through the Fulbright program.

The Fullbright Teaching Program is an international educational exchange sponsored by the U.S. government and designed to increase understanding between people of the United States and people of other countries. The program was established in 1946 under legislation introduced by the late U.S. Sen. J. William Fulbright of Arkansas.

Brouillette will travel to Argentina in March-August 2012. She plans to train a cadre of teachers there to use technology in classrooms and increase student engagement, collaboration and creativity.

Brouillette has taught for more than eight years and was named Teacher of the Year in 2005 at Adams Middle School. She holds both a bachelors and a masters degree in education from the University of Nebraska at Kearney, as well as a bachelors in journalism from Colorado State University.

She was the Executive Director of the North Platte Public Schools Foundation from 1997-2003.
