June 2018 Teacher’s Trip to Bolivia

Over the past few days, teachers from Minnesota and teachers from the tropical regions of Bolivia (department of Beni) have been meeting together at Mano a Mano’s offices in Cochabamba to discuss teaching methods, develop curriculum, learn how they keep parents involved, and have an opportunity to interact in informal as well as classroom settings.


We approach these trips with a deep appreciation for the dedication of teachers in both countries, for the similarities and differences in our life experiences, and for the gifts that teachers from each country can bring to the other. This is Mano a Mano’s 6th year of hosting these teacher trips, with more than 40 Minnesota travelers taking part to date.
