Teachers Training Teachers Initiative was conceived by Sister Sharon Slear, SSND, Dean of the School of Education and Acting Provost at Notre Dame of Maryland University, who traveled to Lagonav. She observed that the partnership supports much-needed training of teachers and provides essential supplies. However, teachers were not equipped to handle students with special needs. Led by the NDMU School of Education, in collaboration with Beyond Borders and the Matenwa School on Lagonav, a group of teachers are being trained in pedagogical interventions that help children with special needs achieve learning benchmarks. The cohort of trained teachers will train other teachers in their network of 25 schools on Lagonav, helping them to work more effectively with children who have diverse learning needs.
