Project Report | Nov 16, 2023
What happens in Teach For Bulgaria classrooms?

By Denitza Manova | Development and Fundraising Specialist

Dear supporters,

This summer break was as busy as ever for Teach For Bulgaria teachers, filled with projects that they initiated in their communities. From folklore activities and a summer musical cabinet to English language competitions and eco-projects, students across Bulgaria had a fun-filled summer learning new skills.

Now that the school year is underway Teach For Bulgaria teachers are back in their classrooms across the country, ready for the school year ahead.

Currently, the Teach For Bulgaria coordinators are conducting their first classroom visits for the school year. During those, they visit each classroom, observe lessons, and meet with the teachers to discuss their progress, challenges, and successes. These visits are crucial for teachers’ development because they allow them to reflect on their skills and challenges and identify ways to improve their approach.

Here are some stories from the classrooms:

33 “St Sofia” High School in Sofia
We observed an English Language class in grade 8. The teacher split the students into groups with the task of coming up and later presenting a business plan for an unusual restaurant - unusual location, unusual concept, unusual food offering. The students took the task onboard and began work. Some took out their phones to research interesting food offerings, while others researched possible locations. “The students were so engrossed in the task they ended up working through the break as well,” shares a Teach For Bulgaria team member who visited the classroom.

75 Secondary School "Todor Kableshkov" in Sofia
We observed a Science class in grade 6. Instead of the familiar ringing sound in the school, the bell reminds students that it’s “time for your next exciting class.” The lesson we observed was a revision of terms and symbols the students had learned already. When they couldn’t remember the symbol for time (t), the teacher nudged them by asking what the word was in English, prompting them to use knowledge from a different class to get to the correct answer.

These are just some examples, among many others, of ways that Teach For Bulgaria teachers connect with their students.

Thank you for supporting our cause. Your help allows us to continue training motivated professionals to become inspiring teachers!

With gratitude,
Teach For Bulgaria team
