MAESTRO for Non-Spanish Teachers


These programs teach Spanish and culture in order to facilitate effective communication between educators and the growing community of native Spanish-speaking LEP students and their parents. The one or two week MAESTRO programs include: Spanish immersion classes, lectures/workshops, cultural & educational site visits, chance to meet with local educators, lodging & meals with local families, activities and excursions.  For those who prefer to stay longer, we offer the option of adding as many extra weeks, as possible.

What To Expect?

The MAESTRO program offers a unique opportunity to learn about a teacher-student and parent-teacher relationships as well as the education system in Latin America all in the context of learning Spanish. Upon completing this program you will have a better understanding of your Spanish-speaking LEP student & parents, and improve your ability to communicate with them.
