Teacher Internship Program

Teacher Internship Week

Established in February of 2009, we have provided an intensive practical week of teaching for the teachers from the community based orphan care centers of the surrounding areas of Blantrye. 16 teachers have been trained so far. These teachers attend the Malawi Montessori Christian School and work with the children and create Montessori materials under the supervision of the teachers. Teachers are asked to complete a pre and post assessment of their own learning. Teachers have a list of teaching experiences/tasks to complete as well as a short oral examination during their week. They create educational materials to take back to their centers. Their learning and teaching is evaluated by a supervising teacher during this week. They receive a review and a certificate of completion at the end of their week. They may repeat this practical teaching week as there is availability. The practical experience is for those working with children from 2 ½ to 6 years of age and 6 to 9 years of age.
