At Teach for Bulgaria we believe that teachers have the strongest impact on students’ motivation and ability to develop their potential. Teachers get students interested in learning and thirsty for knowledge even when the limitations and harsh conditions of their environment make it almost impossible to think about school work. They are the ones who find children’s strengths and develop their agency. Teachers can empower students to become independent, responsible, and active citizens. In order for them to face these and countless other challenges, however, teachers need training, support, and development opportunities just like their students.
This is why we’ve been supporting teachers with their first steps in the profession for 10 years now.
However, it isn’t possible for all Bulgarian teachers to go through our rigorous professional development program. This doesn’t mean that they don’t need or deserve support and development opportunities in order to prepare their students for the challenges of the 21st century. It means that we need to figure out how to reach them.
This is why we started a new two-year program called Model Schools in 2020. Model Schools supports schools in the development and application of sustainable and effective teaching and leadership practices which contribute to every student’s success. The first 26 schools already started their training and we’ll keep you posted about their progress.
