Highly trained instructional coaches collaborate with local teachers in their classrooms. Through consistent in-school support, math lessons become more student-centered. Group workshops strengthen the community of peer leaders.
In Guatemala, teachers have few opportunities to learn best practices in math education. Their preparation for teaching is often limited. Once they are placed in a classroom, support is lacking for them to continue to develop as professionals.
Our local math coaches support area schools, building teachers’ content knowledge and leadership skills through compelling workshops and classroom coaching. Each teacher is provided with support sessions focused on student-centered, culturally responsive approaches. Throughout the course of the school year, teachers’ instructional practice advances and student learning deepens.
MathMobile develops local leaders in math education. Participating teachers learn how to share their new knowledge with their colleagues and become change agents in their schools. By presenting at our conferences, they gain skills necessary to lead with impact.
