It gives us great pleasure to announce that three American high school teachers arrived in Malawi last week to launch the Melete Foundation's inaugural International Teacher Development program. The three teachers are Zakiyyah Ali of The High School for Global Citizenship in Brooklyn, New York, Jebediah Fox of Tucker High School in Tucker, Georgia, and Shannon McGlynn of Sullivan High School in Chicago, Illinois.
The program is a collaboration between the Melete Foundation, Raising Malawi, and the Joyce Banda Foundation International.
From July 15 to August 17, the teachers will travel around Malawi visiting schools and orphanages. In collaboration with the partner foundations, the teachers will work with local teachers and students to develop lesson plans and create programs to improve education at these facilities. The three teachers will also construct lesson plans from their time in Africa to teach their students in the states about the Malawian culture.
