Today we held our first session of teacher training. All the school teachers, kindergarten teachers and aids participated in the “Communicating with Students” session. We were happy to see interest in expanding horizons and had a lively discussion on the various methods of communication and raised important issues concerning Haitian education.
The second session of the day was dedicated to kindergarten teaching methods. We discussed the importance of giving kids a solid education from an early age providing them with the tools to succeed in life. The session ended with examples of lessons appropriate for an early age such as colors, vegetables and days of the week.We will have additional sessions tomorrow and the day after about teaching methodologies, using art as a teaching methodology with some practical exercises
