Teacher Training Retreats
Each year, PEB holds it's Annual PEB Teacher Training Retreat, and US volunteers travel to Pakistan to participate in this week-long event. Volunteers with teaching experience spend dedicated time with PEB teaching staff to share principals, methods, and skills to help improve educational standards and provide a more complete education for the children of Pakistan. It is an opportunity to share your skills while gaining new experiences.
In July 2018, four US volunteers traveled to Pakistan to participate in this week-long training event. Charlotte Dean, Abington Presbyterian, Abington, PA held sessions on Brain-Targeted Teaching models. Alice Price, also of Abington Presbyterian taught the use of folklore and fairy tales to increase English literacy. Cassa Andrews, First Baptist, Atlanta, GA continued her teachings of PBIS, a positive and proactive approach to influence student behavior. Tami Calhoun, First Presbyterian, St. Cloud, MN taught rhythmic drumming and
musicality as it relates to stimulating memory. We are so thankful for all who participated. Each and every volunteer helped to make this a life-changing event!
