Sally McClintock

McClintock (MA ’75, Ed.S. ’87), was a long time teacher and administrator. Among her many contributions to the field was her leading role in establishing LATTICE (Linking all Types of Teachers to International Cross-cultural Education). Building on McClintock’s personal experiences, the partnership supports connections between K-12 classrooms and international students at Michigan State University. In her own words, “I just saw a need, a need to make international experiences and the world beyond our borders more real and interesting for teachers so that they would take that into their classrooms.”

McClintock received many awards recognizing her work including a Crystal Apple Award from the college and a Globie Award recognizing her outstanding service to international students from the MSU Office for International Students and Scholars (Globie Awards Interview: Sally McClintock).
