It is the end of the school year in Guatemala and last week, 33 teachers from 8 different schools got together to receive their diploma from the ministry of education and from TINFA.
Several members of TINFA's board join the celebration virtually through Skype.
In order to obtain their diplomas, teachers participated in monthly technical trainings, contributed to monthly curriculum building efforts, demonstrated their knowledge and techniques through model classes in front of other teachers and in front of students. They provided feedback to one another, all this in a spirit of learning and collaboration.
As one of the teachers puts it : "I was motivated by my students. They told me they wanted to learn through videos and interactive material, like the classroom next door. They pushed me and I am proud for all I have learnt and am using in the classroom. "
Congratulations teachers, modeling your love of learning!
