Teach for Lebanon and BLOM BANK “Spark” Together for Supporting Effective Educators

Beirut, December 9, 2017 BLOM BANK premises in Zaitunay Bay - Teach For Lebanon held a full-day workshop with the generous support of BLOM Bank who sponsored the event.

As part of Teach for Lebanon’s “Spark with Us” fund, BLOM Bank provided a professional training and development day for young graduates who are taking part in Teach For Lebanon's Teaching Program.

The training was inspired from the course on Visible Thinking, offered by Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) and Project Zero (PZ).

The learned strategies will be implemented by the Fellows (full-time highly trained and specialized teachers) in their classrooms. Along the way, participants will be provided with support to help them integrate Visible Thinking practices into their curriculum.

Dr. Pierre Abou Ezze gave an opening speech at the event, highlighting the important role Teach For Lebanon plays in the field of education, especially in remote regions. He also shed light on the strong support BLOM BANK offers to quality education in Lebanon through BLOM shabeb program; stemming from the belief that education is the cornerstone of the social and economic development of Lebanon.
