Project Report | Oct 30, 2020
Summer Academy Teachers and Looking Forward

By Tsvetanka Mancheva | Development Associate

The new motivated first-year teachers in the program  "A New Way to Teaching" are 113. They all went through a theoritical and practical trainings in the first online Summer Academy.

The Summer Academy of Teach For Bulgaria is the basis for the preparation of the participants in the program "A New Way to Teaching" for their work as teachers in the next two years. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this year for the first time the Summer Academy for students was held entirely in a virtual format. The dynamic environment requared many different changes during the training itself, including the organization of a virtual academy for 600 students from all over the country. 

The new participants in Teach For Bulgaria’s program are professionals with diverse experience. They have gone through a rigorous selection process and have been chosen among 3000 applicants. Some of them are engineers, architects, economists, and university graduates from prestigious Bulgarian and international universities. The teachers will work with students from first to twelfth grade. They will teach different subjects, but the highest demand is for math, foreign languages, and primary school teachers. 

“We know that this will be a challenging school year for the educational community and we are excited to be able to support so many new and motivated teachers in their first steps towards helping their students. We are also very happy that the year we celebrate our 10th anniversary is also the year we expand to 6 new regions. This class of participants has already been through many challenges, even before the start of the school year, and this has helped our new teachers learn how to teach regardless of whether it is distance learning or in person instruction. They have learned how to find the best options for their students in collaboration with their colleagues at school,” commented Trayan Trayanov, CEO of Teach For Bulgaria.

Over the past 10 years, more than 400 new teachers have participated in Teach for Bulgaria's "A New Way to Teaching" program. They all went through extensive trainings and provided free education to children during the Summer Academy. They receive professional support to work with students from vulnerable communities and get to know the challenges to our educational system during the two-year program. Over 80% of these teachers continue to work in education as teachers, principals, experts, etc.

Thanks to the support of each of you we manage to get one step closer to fulfilling our goal to provide quality education to underpriviliged children and to keep them motivated during the Summer Academy.

With gratitude,

Teach For Bulgaria
