E.B. SAGREJÁ

I visited SAGREJÁ school in a tour over Zone 3. Here, I had the chance to meet with the new principal and T. Asdrubal Aguilar. I noticed they had not received the books yet, but they were working and students were very attentive to all the teacher instructions. They were very friendly and received me with a big smile. Very well behaved students. I realized Asdrubal is doing a great job with them.
Keep the hard work T. Asdrubal!

Coclé & P. Oeste - April

In April, we visited 8 schools in Coclé, and 7 in Panama Oeste, held meetings with teachers, delivered personalized training sessions, and conducted class observations in each of them. At each school, we were able to see how teachers make art out of their creativity using our series and resources. In some schools, the Active Teach has been the most used tool, while in others, audio tracks accompanied with the books have been of more help. Every school Works according to the resources it has, and we continue to serve as a collaborative force to help teachers move forward and be ALWAYS LEARNING!
