Twenty-five teachers and principals in Guatemala experienced a TRIBES overview workshop lead by Canadian Tribes trainer, Brian Jones from the Durham District School Board in Ontario. The participants learned interactive teaching strategies that can be duplicated in their classroom. The Guatemalan teachers represented the following villages: Paraxaj, Chitaburuy, Parrojas, and Parramos. All the teachers and principals appreciated the strategies and activities that moved the group through inclusion, influence, and community. These teachers are highly valued and are making a difference in the lives of the Guatemalan children. The educators were excited to learn new strategies that build community inclusion and improve student achievement. It couldn’t have been successful presented without the Spanish translators. Laughter, smiles and a passion to make a difference are universal regardless of language barriers.
