We received some exciting news last month, that will allow us to conduct the teacher seminars we’ve been planning for the summer months. Tyndale House has approved a grant of $18,000 for teacher training and curriculum development! This is the same grant that we received in 2015 that allowed us to develop Kindergarten Bible curriculum. That’s one of the items needing revision.
A couple years ago, Andrew visited the classroom of a new teacher that had been recently hired by one of our schools and who had never had any training with us. All the student books, textbooks, posters, and charts were sitting in boxes on the floor unused. He had never been trained to use any of those materials so the kids never even saw them. That day served as a reminder that curriculum development and teacher training must go hand in hand. Please pray that we’ll have wisdom to be good stewards of the money God’s provided for the schools and that this summer’s efforts will be effective.
