We returned to Guatemala in September and had a very busy month there checking in on Project Quetzal’s 8 projects. The 2 new teachers (Amalia and Rosario) who started in July (after attending the summer training) are both doing a fantastic job. Amalia’s classroom is at the local primary school and Rosario’s class is in her home.
All of the preschool teachers attend 2 weeklong trainings a year. The curriculum is play-centered with participative activities linked to the daily educational outcomes and themes in children’s books. The classrooms are filled with natural and recycled materials along with books and educational materials.
