GSE In Inside Fordham: Fulbright Visiting Scholar Florentina Halimi

The Graduate School of Education will welcome to its faculty an accomplished Albanian scholar from Macedonia, Florentina Halimi, Ph.D., who will spend the fall semester teaching and researching as a Fulbright Visiting Scholar.

Halimi, a linguist specializing in English language instruction and acquisition, has chosen Fordham as the host school for her Fulbright research to collaborate with the GSE’s programs in English language learning to study the development of teacher leadership.

In particular, Halimi will take advantage of the resources of the Center for Educational Partnerships, which will enable her to work within several New York City schools and will also allow her to study the teacher-leader training models offered by programs like the Long Island/Westchester Bilingual & ESL Teacher Leadership Academy (LI/W BETLA).
