In this video by Fabretto volunteer and filmmaker Douglas Cushnie, Margarita, a preschool teacher, shares her experience in the classroom. Margarita has received training from Fabretto and currently teaches in a small rural community outside of Cusmapa, Nicaragua.
We believe that teacher training leads to sustainable improvements to education, particularly in rural Nicaragua, where many teachers have received no preparation at all. We’ve already seen positive results from the Fabretto approach to primary teacher training, which has been adopted by the Ministry of Education in its nationwide program. Based on this experience, we’ve designed a program that trains preschool teachers in the Montessori philosophy of education, using hands-on activities and play to teach the littlest students.
