Fellow Introduces Dynamic Teaching Methods to Future Educators

English language Fellow Deborah Rodriguez Garcia began teaching at the Machinga Teacher Training College in Liwonde, Malawi earlier this year. The College, founded in 2010, prepares young adults aspiring to become primary teachers. Machinga Teacher Training College is a sustainable and enthusiastic teaching environment. Grassroots, locally-available materials are used in teaching, and the energy and motivation of the young teachers is refreshing.

As part of her fellowship, Deborah will not only co-teach there but also engage in outreach in the greater community. In just a few short weeks, she has started initiatives such as training workshops for English lecturers, an English reading club for adults, and a collaboration with the American Corners in Zomba, Malawi.
