Dear Teach Central America Week Educators,

You are one of more than 250 teachers from 34 U.S. states, D.C., and four other countries (Bermuda, Honduras, Colombia, and Canada) who have signed up to teach about Central America next week.

We are thrilled that you have committed to uplift the culture and history of Central America from October 4th - 10th and the rest of the school year! We are excited to learn from you and hope that you will share your teaching story from this week.

Some of you have participated since we began this campaign in 2019 and others joined the call in 2021.

We invite you to learn from each other and to learn about a new resource on Tuesday, October 12 at 4PM PT/ 7PM ET

During this time, we will make space for participants to share in small groups what they did for Teach Central America Week sharing resources and future plans.
Thank you for all you do,

Teaching for Change Team
