Last week, more than 40 Mali Rising teachers came together for 5 days of training and sharing ideas. This is all thanks to our generous supporters, who understand that a school is only as good as its teachers. Thanks to our donors, each Mali Rising school now has two teachers with more skills to share with their students!
Our Teacher Project Coordinator will share more details about the training via this blog later in January. For now, we wanted to share just a few photos from the week, showing our teachers in action as they learn and grow. They focused on developing skills to build more engaged, active learning strategies into their classrooms, ways to better support girls’ learning, and tactics for managing their huge class sizes (100 students in a classroom is not at all rare!).
