Mano a Mano Teacher Trips Training Manual

This teacher’s training manual was one of the main outcomes of our teacher trips – a reference guide for Bolivian teachers to be able to teach more of their fellow Bolivian teachers simple methods to potentially improve math and language teaching.

7 Years of Teacher Trips

In June 2019, Mano a Mano hosted our 7th (and final!) year of teacher workshops. These trips were an opportunity for teachers from Minnesota and teachers from Bolivia to meet together and 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. On November 12, 2019 we gathered with Minnesota teachers that have participated in these trips for a discussion and celebration of what was accomplished through these trips.
