Education Professors Conduct Workshops in Haiti

Education Professors Annette Little and Sally Barton-Arwood have returned from Grand Goâve, Haiti where they worked with teachers at Siloë Baptist Church School in collaboration with Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and their Haitian partner and translator Jeanson Chery. Little and Barton-Arwood designed and conducted workshops about Professional Learning Communities with elementary and secondary teachers. Teachers learned about characteristics of effective teamwork, developed shared professional goals, and practiced working together as reflective partners. Feedback from school principal Victor Jean Lestin and teachers was very positive. One teacher noted that now,  “We have someone else who is thinking about future of Siloë.”
