On February 6 the TPS Spanish team welcomed nine teachers visiting from Panama, along with Ben Barnett, Coordinator of Drexel University’s Panama Bilingue 2019, a teacher-training program. Participants attend Drexel’s English Language Center, where they improve their English skills and study language-teaching methodology for seven weeks from January to March.
During their visit to TPS, our visiting educators were given a full tour; observed kindergarten, third, and eighth grade classes; and engaged in spirited dialogue about teaching and learning languages as well as exploring cultures. One of the visitors, Esperanza, is from Colón, Giovana's hometown, which offered a special connection to celebrate!
This was the program’s second annual visit to TPS. We look forward to another visit in 2020!
