At the beginning of September, all students, parents and teachers are getting ready for the first day of the school year. This is a very important and emotional period for the new teachers of Teach for Bulgaria, too, as we know that they need support not only from our team but from their families, relatives and everyone else who believes that each child is entitled to quality education.
Currently, the 120 new teachers are planning hard their first lessons and meetings with the students whose success and development will be their priority during the next two years, in almost 80 partnering schools from 10 regions.
To obtain that goal, however, all of those people need to be trained and work hard before the beginning of the school year. It all starts with their choice and responsibility to be part of the change, goes through the strict selection process and, last but not least, includes the exciting but busy six weeks of the Summer Institute and Summer Academy.
During the whole process, the teachers and team of Teach for Bulgaria are supported by corporate and individual donors and partners who truly believe that overcoming inequality in education in the whole country is an important step for the better future of all of us.
The Summer Institute and Summer Academy would not have been that successful for all the 120 new teachers without the help of America for Bulgaria Foundation, Bankya, The International Women’s Club and HP. The support of all Questers’ employees is also to mention, as every month they donate part of their salary to TFB’s cause.
“Every child’s education, in every school and Bulgarian town, is an important prerequisite for our future, which is no less important than the achievements of the students in the elite schools.That is why it’s important to support large-scale initiatives like TFB’s. That is a mission helping many of the children who will continue living in Bulgaria,” said Alexander Drangazhov, the CEO of Questers.
The support provided by those partners as well as by all of our supporters is the foundation for the successful development of TFB’s teachers in the next few years. However, most of all, it is an investment in the success of the students those teachers will meet on 15th September. You can also support them!
