Eileen Mattingly

Director of Education for Journeys in Film

My interest in global education dates back to my bachelor's degree in international studies at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. For more than three decades of classroom teaching and a stint as Director of World Wise Schools for the Peace Corps, I've had the opportunity to develop lessons that reflect this interest. I've also developed lesson materials for PBS, including Bill Moyers NOW and Frontline,and written a number of curriculum guides for The Center for Learning. As Director of Education for Journeys in Film, I work with teams of teachers to develop lesson plans that help teachers use foreign films and documentaries in their classrooms.
