It’s been a busy couple of weeks at LMLA with the delivery of SMRT teacher training first to Soma Made from the Kul Kul project at green school, Indonesia and then to Maria Jose Heras Zambada and Blanca Edith Gutierrez Acuna from Centro De Educacion Bilingue (CEB), Mexico. These teachers received thorough training both at LMLA for SMRT Kids and Youth and at our SMRT partner school the Canadian College of English Language (CCEL) for Adult SMRT.
The teachers from Mexico were particularly impressed with LMLA. “Visiting Little Mountain Learning Academy and interacting with its staff has been an outstanding experience from multiple perspectives. Their vision on education is innovative and inspiring. They offer an exceptional learning environment for their students that encourages them not only to acquire knowledge but to seek it. Their staff is amazing, passionate about their profession and always friendly.” – María Jose Heras
For me as the owner of LMLA it was great to see our teachers sharing in their passion for teaching and the pride in what they do here at LMLA. No doubt the future will bring more such training opportunities as the international SMRT network of schools grow and as more schools abroad begin to deliver LMLA created curriculum for the SMRT platform.
It was also very special to have Soma Made from the Kul Kul project at Green School here as he prepares to train 2 new additional teachers for the Kul Kul project upon his return to Indonesia. The goal is to double from 75 to 150 the amount of children from villages surrounding green school that will receive free English Language education on the SMRT platform.
Soma will return to Indonesia well prepared to train these teachers and to deliver improved education to these children. We here at LMLA are very proud of the partnership between Green School and CCEL that has brought free education on the SMRT platform to these children. We feel we supporting opportunities for these children that has the opportunities to change life paths in exciting ways.
A special thanks to Jacqui for organizing and leading the training sessions and for all the teachers who shared their classrooms and their energies.
