When does 14 +17 add up to more than 31? When local teachers are working with the teachers from Sonlight Academy, located in Port de Paix, Haiti.
For the second year, Southland hosted the teachers from Sonlight for a week of workshops to help them become better teachers, improve their own skills at conflict resolution, and grow in their spiritual formation. Teachers from various schools led these workshops for the Sonlight teachers, introducing them to new methods of teaching, thinking about learning, and their roles as teachers.
Why does Southland support Sonlight Academy teachers this way? In Haiti, these teachers do not have access to continuing professional education. When they are in the US for the summer these teachers visit their supporting churches, so there’s little time for them to work on their teaching skills.
The teachers from Sonlight responded positively to the men and women who presented this summer. They said they were encouraged, challenged, refreshed, and supported by these men and women. They also expressed thanks to Southland for hosting, feeding, and gift-giving.
The presenters all expressed gratitude to these men and women who choose to go to Haiti, learn a new language and culture, and seek to help the children there learn to learn. Some of the teachers from this area are planning a trip to Sonlight this fall so they can better understand the conditions in which the Sonlight teachers work.
When do 14+17 equal more than 31? When God brings together teachers who love their students, love teaching, and want to make a kingdom impact.
