In 2013 the Teachers’ School was created to give continuity to Mister Agustin’s dream of founding an active training center for the teachers of the school and of the country. Like our founder, we think that the best teacher is the one who never stops studying, not necessarily the one who is only trained in pedagogical theories which, as mister Agustin says, are only “the scaffolding of the work”, but the one who is done in active work and in the exchange of experiences with other teachers. We want teachers who are happy to work in the Gimnasio Moderno, inspiring and active, attentive to the reality of what is happening in the world, but above all, to what is happening with each of their students.
The Teachers’ Academy has worked on such fundamental purposes as the following:
- To promote the welfare of teachers.
- Create spaces for interaction where teachers reflect on their practices and work together with other teachers to make their classrooms more creative and dynamic.
- To organize meetings or conferences with recognized teachers from the country and the world.
