"The best teachers teach from the heart, not from the book." --Anonymous
Building a Teacher Resource Center at St. Timothy's School in Moshi, Tanzania will help build for the future! St. Tim's is a school of 300 students that employs a 2:1 model; for every two paying students, one can attend for free. These students come from vulnerable circumstances- many are orphans from the community and could not otherwise afford a good education.
Why a Teacher Resource Center?
The Teacher Resource Center will provide St. Tim's teachers the access they need to new resources that will enhance their ability to provide their students with the best possible support, academic and otherwise. The teachers will be able to enhance their teaching skills and lesson plans, making the students' experience in the classroom more interactive and stimulating. The Resource Center will also improve teacher retention, keeping good teachers around for longer!
Because of an increased teacher retention and quality of education, the community surrounding the school will gain confidence in the school's ability to teach and care for their children. This means more paying students will attend, which means more vulnerable kids can attend for free!
Please help the teachers at St. Timothy's to continue to #TeachToInspire!
