Professional Development at Meynaa School on the island of Holhudhoo in the Maldives

Nearly two years ago, I began communicating with "Volunteer Maldives," about volunteering on one of the islands.  "Volunteer Maldives" was one of the few organizations looking for a mentor teacher, and it was that mentoring assignment that caught my attention.


After a week of classroom observations at Meynaa School on the island of Holhudhoo and talking with the school's administration, I've been given the assignment of providing a series of professional development workshops for the 40 secondary and 20 elementary teachers.

Training topics will include, for example, instructional strategies related to reading comprehension, writing and listening.
