The End of a Week

What a great group of teachers! We finished up the last day of the first session of Teacher Professional Development in the Kibera slum. The teachers will spend the next months working on implementing the things they have learned. They'll meet in cohorts every 3 weeks to discuss their progress, and to get encouragement and ideas from each other. They will send me a report of the cohort meetings with date, time, and attendance. It is part of a long process which makes the one week of input from me actually valuable, because it ensures that they keep practicing and using what they have learned, and don't just set it aside because it is difficult to change.
