" I think that the brightest insights can come when people are sharing their ideas. Being a Millennium Fellow gives me the opportunity to share and shape my vision with other really talented people who are as passionate as me to help. My vision is to help teachers by connecting those who've had more privilege and opportunities to learn, with others who have not. Quality education can change lives, so for me it's simple, if I want to contribute on that, all I have to do is help the ones in the front lines: Teachers. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: De maestros Para Maestros
De maestros Para maestros (From teachers To teachers) is a free teacher training program based on the educational needs of a vulnerable community. De maestros Para maestros consists on online workshops taught by teachers who've had more privilege and opportunities to learn and are willing to share their knowledge with other teachers who haven't had them. This way we hope teachers can be more prepared and confident in tackling their schools' educational needs.
We hope to offer 2 elementary schools at least 8 free workshops in which we hope to impact at least 10 teachers . Indirectly impacting the education of approximately 300 students, since each public school teacher in M√©xico has an average of 30 students in their classrooms.
