APSU Education Professors and Graduate Students help Teachers in Guatemala

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – In Guatemala, it’s easy for a public school teacher to feel overwhelmed. Class sizes are large, with about 45 to 50 students squeezing into a small, hot classroom. And most teachers in that country begin their careers at the age of 17 or 18, with minimal preparation.

“The resources are limited there,” Dr. Barbara Peterson, Austin Peay State University associate professor of education, said. “The schools are very poorly funded.”

APSU associate professor of education Dr. Barbara Peterson (red top), and former APSU graduate students Jodi Davidson (brown blazer) and David Kennedy (purple shirt) presented American teaching methods to Guatemalan educators last semester.
